Kenya walking tightrope on EPAs talks

The outcome of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) negotiations scheduled for December will determine the future of trade between the EAC bloc and European Union. The negotiations have been on a 14-month break since the Zanzibar meeting in September.

EAC hopes to challenge the EU’s strict sanitary and phytosanitary requirements (SPS) on regional exports that have long locked commodities from the region out of the European market. The standards are said to be higher than those of other world organisations.

The region’s technological standards can’t match these EU requirements and experts have urged the bloc to raise the issue come December.
