The Development Dimension of Services Negotiations in the Cotonou Partnership Agreement

This chapter reviews the development dimension of services negotiations in the Cotonou Partnership Agreement (CPA) between EU and ACP states. The CPA differs from its immediate predecessor, the Lomé IV bis agreement for 1995–2000, as it allows for the first time for the negotiation of reciprocal services agreements between the EU and African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) regions.
