East Africa and Europe to resume trade negotiations

Technical level negotiators from the European Union (EU) and the East African Community (EAC) met last week in Zanzibar to set an agenda for the blocs’ trade negotiations for the coming months. A statement, availed to The Citizen by the press and information officer at the delegation of the EU in Tanzania, Mr Emmanuel Kihaule, noted yesterday that the Zanzibar meetings which came after a 14-month break, made good progress in setting an agenda for negotiations over the coming months.

The parties jointly agreed to make progress in negotiations in particular on three fronts - economic and development co-operation; rules of origin and agriculture. The next formal joint negotiation session is scheduled to take place in mid December; a number of inter-session meetings at expert level will prepare the ground.
