CARIFORUM: meeting of legislative drafters of EPA

A second meeting of legislative drafters who will be tasked with preparing legislation to give effect to provisions of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between CARIFORUM (Caribbean Forum of African, Caribbean and Pacific) States and the EU took place from 7-8 March in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Meeting targeted legislative drafters from CARIFORUM States that are signatory to the EPA. The initial meeting was held in November 2012.
The EPA was signed by fourteen CARIFORUM States in October 2008 and by the fifteenth CARIFORUM States, and Haiti, in December 2009. The Agreement is being provisionally applied since 29 December 2008.
The fifteen signatory Caribbean Forum of African, Caribbean and Pacific (CARIFORUM) States to the EPA are the independent CARICOM Member States and the Dominican Republic.
