SRO-EA is based in Kigali and covers 14 countries: Rwanda and covers Burundi, Comoros, D.R Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.

Who are the participants of the ICE?

Senior Government Officials of the above-mentioned 14 countries served by the office as well as Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs).
