- In order to facilitate the liberalisation and expension of trade between the RCD countries various steps have been taken including the setting up of the RCD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the RCD Shipping Services, the RCD Insurance Pool, and the signing of the RCD Agreement on Trade. In view of the slow progress in some fields UNCTAD was requested to undertake a study to identify barriers impeding intra-regional trade and make recommendations for their removal. An expert of the UNCTAD has already submitted his report. Some of the recommendations of the report are in the final stages of implementation.
- In the field of Postal Communications, there is extensive collaboration between the three Postal Administrations. Intra-regional mail is carried at specially reduced rates and the national airlines are being increasingly utilised for regional flights. Besides, there is continuous contact between the postal authorities of the region to improve postal communications system and pooling each countries experience in the field of postal mechanisation. There has been significant development in the field of Telecommunications system which has brought the three countries still closer to each other.
- The Postal Administrations of the member countries traditionally issue and simultaneously release commemorative postage stamps on July 21 every year to mark RCD’s Anniversary.
