Striving for regional integration – baseline study for implementation of FIP

The Protocol on Finance and Investment (FIP) is one of the protocols entered into by the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Member States to give legal and practical effect to their commitments under the SADC Treaty. The FIP is supported by the content of the SADC Regional Indicative Strategic Plan (RISDP) which articulates the broader level goals that underpin the FIP, including full regional financial integration, the formation of a monetary union and the adoption of a single currency.
