The end of current EU preferences for Namibia: Economic and social impacts

Briefing/policy papers

Key Points:

ODI research on Namibia indicates that the loss of current EU preferences is likely to have negative economic and social effects.

- Namibia’s major agricultural exports to the EU would be put in a less favourable position than those of its major competitors – all of which are more advanced economies.

-The EU could avoid this situation if it has the political will.
