Drinks party to celebrate the Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and West Africa

As part of the 45th Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States, which was held in Accra, the Heads of 16 West African states decided to sign the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with the EU, a move welcomed by Karel De Gucht, Member of the EC in charge of Trade.
The agreement fully took into account the differences in the level of development between the two regions. The EU will provide West African firms with conditions that are more advantageous than those that apply to European exports to Africa. In the negotiations, the EU committed itself to open its market to all West African products as soon as the agreement enters into force. In exchange, the EU accepted a partial and gradual opening of the West African market. Only if and when West Africa will be ready to grant more far-reaching concessions to the Europe's main competitors, will the EU be able to claim those same improvements.
To celebrate this agreement, a drinks party was organised in Strasbourg in the presence of several high representatives.
