EAC EU EPA UPDATE

Today the EAC Member States have finally come to a convergence on the EU proposals on the EPA text.  The next step will be a joint session of EAC and EU senior Officials by mid-October 2014 to formally endorse the text and initial paving way to the process of Market Access Regulation (MAR) for Kenya.  

In the meantime, Kenya will continue trading under GSP, until the MAR is granted; a process that should take between 2 and 6 months.

The Government of Kenya is fully committed to concluding the pact expeditiously. We will keep tracking the developments as they unfold and advice on the dates of the next EAC – EU meeting once confirmed.
