Hide / Show Abstract

The prospect of the UK formulating its own trade policy following Brexit is likely to have implications for the existing Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) between the European Union (EU) and some African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, and the UK’s future trading arrangements with the ACP. This issue of Commonwealth Trade Hot Topics examines the implications of Brexit for existing EPAs, and options for trade arrangements that could avoid possible trade disruptions arising as a result of post-Brexit policy shifts.
