EPAs: Europe’s last effort to divide Africa

With clear evidence of disintegration among the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries starting to emerge, it seems the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) will not attain their intended objectives of enhancing trade, providing full market access, and a free trade market reciprocity arrangement. Recent happenings indicate that the free trade EPAs would not bring development to the 77 former European colonies which have been divided into six groupings for the purpose of negotiating the agreement. Over the past few months, pressure in the negotiations of the EPA with the European Union (EU) have pushed three regional economic groupings in Africa on the verge of disintegration instead of enhancing integration and unity.
