The South African Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (PPCAFF) said on Friday 30 November that the ban of the European Union (EU) on imports of South African citrus products is a "major concern" and "poses a threat" to the country's socio-economic development and that of the region. The ban followed reports about citrus "black spot" that was found in citrus fruit cargos from South Africa to European this year.

Dominica is pursuing efforts to get the European Union (EU) to remove the visa requirements for Dominican nationals travelling to Europe, saying that it is important to stimulate trade under the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) signed with Europe five years ago.
Junior Foreign Affairs Minister Alvin Bernard said Dominica has joined several countries in making the request. “Apparently the consideration of the request from Dominica is still for consideration…but it has been delayed because of the countries from the Middle Eastern area included on the list”.
