The Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) are comprehensive trade agreements between the United Kingdom (UK) and African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP). Their background dates from when the UK was a member of the European Union (EU). In an effort to update its prior trade relations with ACP countries, and ensure compliance with the rules of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the EU has negotiated and signed Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP). These include seven (7) EPAs with Central Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA), East African Community (EAC), Southern African Development Community (SADC), West Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific countries. The trade relations between the UK and ACP countries after it has left the EU are largely based on these EPAs.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
As I browse the web researching various topics concerning the EU and UK sugar markets, I've been bookmarking interesting weblinks. Some of these are news clippings, some are links to official documents, and some are interesting data sources.
