Guyana taking advantage of EPA accord

Guyana has said despite its earlier reservations, it is among the first country within the Caribbean Forum (CARIFORUM) to put in place the necessary legislation to take advantage of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) regional countries signed with the European Union in 2008.

“The Government of Guyana takes very seriously, international agreements we sign and the EPA is no different. Notwithstanding our reservations we signed and it was no surprise therefore, that Guyana was among the first group of countries to put in place all the necessary legislative arrangements for the implementation of the agreement,” Foreign Affairs Minister Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett told a two-day consultation on the CARIFORUM-EU accord.

A government statement said that the consultation placed focus on trade services, withreference on cross border supply of services, temporary presence of natural persons for business purposes and sectoral rules. It said that the consultation will pave the way, not only for enhanced public awareness, but the political and technical input of civil society.
