The EU ordered Britain Wednesday to answer complaints about its "traffic light" anti-obesity food label system, which Mediterranean countries say is unfair towards products such as cheese and ham. The labelling is supposed to alert consumers with green, yellow and red indicators but many southern European nations say it fails to distinguish between junk food and traditional products with naturally high levels of fat.

New economic data from Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) received Monday indicates the country’s exports to Netherlands hit 244 million U.S. dollars in the first six months of this year, compared to Britain’s 195 million dollars. Britain has been Kenya’s second top destination of exports for over two years after beating Tanzania. However, the country, according to the economic data, now stands at position four, with U.S. coming in third as Kenya strengthens its bilateral ties with President Barrack Obama’s administration.

Kenya and Finland are set to sign a double taxation agreement in order to promote trade and investment relations, a Finnish envoy has said. Finland's Ambassador to Kenya Sofie From-Emmesberger told Xinhua that a draft agreement has already been prepared and is waiting approval from both countries."We are currently sensitizing investors in Finland on the growing opportunities in Kenya's growing economy," Emmesberger said on the sidelines of the launch of the Interpol Environmental Security Office in Nairobi late on Monday.

While rich countries are often singled out for missing their development aid funding targets, a new report by the anti-poverty group ONE found that developing countries also fail to hold up their end of the deal. EurActiv Germany and EurActiv France report. The ONE data report for 2014, "Fighting poverty and financing Africa's future", investigates Official Development Aid (ODA) contributed by G8 states and the European Union. The report, published on Monday (6 October), measures where rich countries stand in their pledge to contribute 0.7% of Gross National Income to development aid.
