Strengthening Caribbean-EU Economic and Trade Relations Post-COVID


Kimonique Powell


This issue of the Commonwealth’s Trade Hot Topics takes stock of Caribbean-EU relations to date with the intent of assessing what recent developments signal for their economic relations in the future. It begins by revisiting the historical linkages between the two regions and how their partnership evolved from Lomé to the Cotonou agreement and the EPA. Thereafter, it examines the implications of Brexit and the new EU-OACPS Partnership Agreement for future economic relations. It concludes with policy recommendations for Caribbean countries to strengthen and extract value from their partnership with the EU post-2021.
