An essential reader and reference tool for trade experts and interested parties, bringing together key analysis on all aspects of trade negotiations between the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) states and the European Union.

The editors, both highly experienced in trade negotiations, have selected the most useful articles on all key aspects of trade negotiations, including market access, services, fisheries, regional integration, compatibility with the multilateral framework, the development dimension and capacity building in trade negotiations.

The introduction highlights the major concerns of the book, focusing on ensuring that the priorities of developing countries are addressed.

This publication is comprised of two volumes.



EBA-equivalence for non-LDC Sugar Exporters?

The EU's Everything but Arms (EBA) initiative provides preferential access to the EU for least developed countries' (LDCs) agricultural exports. This involves unrestricted duty-free access for most of these products, though in the case of a few sensitive products (including sugar) the liberalisation is to be phased in between 2008 and 2009. EBA offers the agriculture-exporting LDCs the opportunity to increase agricultural production and exports.
