The heads of state for the Northern Corridor countries of Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan will be participating in the summit. Also invited is the United Republic of Tanzania as a member of the EAC.

The summit will be preceded by a meeting of senior officials on February 18 and of ministers on February 19.
