Eastern & Southern Africa (ESA) and the EU negotiate in Mauritius

EU and Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) agents met recently in Mauritius to negotiate relevant issues in the comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). Among the topics on the agenda, they discussed on trade in goods, sustainable development, trade in services, and trade-related rules.

According to the European Commission, talks were constructive: if the good will and positive approach displayed by the parties are maintained, the objective of concluding the negotiations in 2012 will become realistic.

While subjects such as the Most Favored Nation (MFN) clause, Sanitary and Phytosanitary Standards (SPS), and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) have experienced progress, additional discussions are needed on others, namely Rules of Origin and export taxes. Next negotiation round at technical and senior officials' level will take place in March 2012 in Brussels.
