The European Union (EU) ambassador to Kenya, Lodewijk Briet, urges the Kenyan government to sign the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the EU, so that exporters can benefit from duty free exports to the European market.  Kenya earned $495 million in sales of roses exported to Europe last year, which is equivalent to 30 percent of the total exports to Europe (including Holland, Britain, Germany, France and Switzerland). However, Kenya delayed signing the EPAs that were negotiated last year. The ambassador underlined that the new deadline for ratification is October 2016. Kenya’s flower sector is one of the high class flower sectors worldwide and employs over 500,000 people both directly and indirectly.
