Economic Partnership Agreements: What happens in 2008?

Briefing/policy paper

Written by Chris Stevens

Briefing/policy paper

The terms on which the EU and the Africa Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) states trade with each other are established in the Cotonou Agreement 2000, which specifies that a new regime must be agreed by end-2007, a date that coincides with the expiry of a World Trade Organization (WTO) waiver for the current regime. This Briefing Paper, which builds upon substantial ODI work, identifies the best way forward.
