image of After Lomé IV

By early 2000, a new trade agreement must be negotiated between the 72 countries of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group and the European Union, to replace Lomé IV. This volume features: a commentary on the EU’s proposals for the new trade arrangements; an analysis of two free trade area agreements which indicate what these proposals could mean for ACP countries; and a series of suggested counterproposals by the ACP group.



Executive Summary

This report has been prepared to assist the African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP) to develop a detailed strategy for their relationship with the European Union (EU) after the expiry of the Lomé Convention. It aims to provide a contribution both to the current negotiations and to appropriate policy formation within ACP countries.
