The EU-CARIFORUM Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA)

The EU-CARIFORUM Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), entered into force in December 2008 with the overarching objective to enhance reciprocal trade in goods, services, investment, competition, sustainable development, as well as deepening regional integration between the Parties.

This webinar will discuss the impact of the EPA on the private sector, hear from firms in the goods and services sector about their experiences regarding trade under the EPA and comment on the recommendations for the future on how to unlock the trade potential under this EPA.

The consulting firm Ecory’s will present the results of their assessment on the state of EU-CARIFORUM trade as well as four sector case studies, namely cultural and creative services, beverages and rum, the dairy sector and investments with a focus on tourism. For their study a total of 200 stakeholders were consulted in the CARIFORUM Region and in the EU.
