Joint Communiqué: 3rd Cariforum EU Council meeting

The Third Meeting of the Joint CARIFORUM-European Union (EU) Council under the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) was held in Guyana on 16 July 2015. The Joint Communiqué published by both parties underscores the importance of the Five Year Implementation Review to determine the Agreement’s impact. During the meeting, it was agreed to (i) develop a joint monitoring system, as continuous  monitoring of the EPA, is provided for in Article 5 of the Agreement and (ii) to establish a Special Committee on Agriculture and Fisheries to exchange information, consult and take action in these fields, in order to contribute effectively to the existing CARIFORUM Food and Nutrition Security and sustainable development plan. It was regrettable that the meeting noted that CARIFORUM States had not yet been able to fully convert the market access offered by the EPA into meaningful market presence and there was concern that the EPA has not yet had the anticipated impact on overall trade between CARIFORUM and the EU. Both parties member states were urged to ratify the agreement.

Here is the joint communiqué.
