A European Parliament study on the impacts of WTO negotiations on fisheries underlines the significance of trade in fisheries for the EU-27 as the leading import market for fish products in the world. The EU-27 share of world import amounts to 30 percent in value. Imports originate mainly from Norway, China, Iceland and the USA. Around 10 percent of EU-27 imports are imported from ACP countries.
Jamaican government received a $2.2-billion European Union grant to offset a shortfall in earnings resulting from the closure of the island's bauxite companies last year. The grant funds, however, will not be utilised in direct assistance to the bauxite sector but will instead go to Government's budget support.
