Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) to be signed in July
The Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the European Commission and the Caribbean states will be signed in July.
The decision was made at the 26th Special Meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development which ended in Antigua and Barbuda on Saturday.
The EPA deal provides wide access throughout the European Union for goods from member states of CARIFORUM — a trade bloc of Caribbean Community countries and the Dominican Republic.
