Kenya advances negotiations on the interim Economic Partnership Agreement with the EU

There are no translations available.

On 17 February 2022 the EU and Kenya agreed to advance negotiations on the conclusion of an interim Economic Partnership Agreement (iEPA). This iEPA is expected to improve trade and investment opportunities and help boost sustainable economic growth and job creation in Kenya. EPAs are free trade agreements initially conceived by the EU to cover groups of countries aggregated in specific regional areas with the purpose of streamlining negotiations with them. However, some of them have been concluded with individual African countries in view of their progressive extension to other countries pertaining to the same region. This is the case of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Cameroon.

The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements (SFPA) of the EU with African countries

There are no translations available.

Currently, 15 African countries have concluded bilateral agreements called “Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements” (SFPA) with the EU allowing fishing in their respective waters. However, 4 of such agreements (with Equatorial Guinea, Liberia, Madagascar and Mozambique) are “dormant” as there is no implementing protocol in force setting out the criteria for fishing in their respective waters, including the modalities for issuing the relevant fishing authorisations. The consequence of this “dormant” status of the above agreements is that that EU vessels are not allowed to fish in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of such countries.

There are no translations available.

A new publication from the World Bank describes the trade dynamics in the various Sub-Saharan Africa’s subregions since 2010. The study shows that except from 2015 to 2019, Sub-Saharan Africa’s trade has, by and large, grown faster than other parts of the world. Specifically, the growth in exports has been particularly high for capital goods than for consumer or intermediate goods. Capital goods are durable goods that are used in producing other goods and services and include machinery, tools and other equipment used to produce goods for consumption. In terms of regional areas, East Africa’s takes the lead, with exports and imports of both goods and services that have grown systematically faster than other regions in Africa. By contrast, Southern Africa’s exports of goods have been growing in line with the world average.
