EPA UPDATES

EAC EU EPAs- Kigali July 21-23rd 2014
At the end of the final Senior Officials meeting in Kigali on 24th July 2014, the three outstanding issues i.e. Export taxes, domestic and export subsidies and good governance remain unresolved. As such these were escalated to the ministerial level. It is anticipated that the ministerial meeting will take place in September; too close to the October deadline to bank on avoidance of imposition of duties on flower exports into the EU. In the meantime KFC and KAM are keeping a close watch on current discussions between parties.
We will keep you updated on the developments as they unfold.
