EPAs continue to pose great challenge to ACP

African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Secretary-General, Sir John Kaputin has re-iterated that the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) have continued to pose a great challenge to the ACP Group of States at the national, regional and all-ACP levels. He told ACP chief negotiators attending the Meeting of the Technical Follow-up Group on negotiation and implementation of EPAs that the challenge is due to the fact that the EPA process has created a differentiation within the ACP as a Group and in some of the regions. Sir John agreed that ACP regions and some ACP countries within their designated regions are progressing at variable speeds. Overall, only 25 ACP countries have signed a full or interim EPA, 11 have initialled but not signed while 42 have neither initialled nor signed any agreement.
