Do EPAs undermine regional integration in Southern Africa?

Regional integration features prominently in the development strategies of most African countries.   The current regional integration agenda for East and Southern Africa is ambitious.  The Southern African Customs Union (SACU) member states have agreed to a new vision for deeper integration, and as part of SACU’s legal and institutional development, to institutionalize a Summit of Heads of State and Government.  The Southern African Development Community (SADC), which includes all the SACU member states,  is consolidating its Free Trade Area, and the East African Community has started the implementation of its common market, which was launched in mid-2010.  The 26 member states of SADC, EAC and COMESA have agreed to establish a Tripartite Free Area; a draft Agreement and 14 Annexes have been prepared, but negotiations have not yet begun.
