Remarks
This Agreement forms part of the Barcelona Process (Euro-Mediterranean partnership). Although all the Euro-Mediterranean Association Agreements reflect the general principles governing the new Euro-Mediterranean relationship, they each contain characteristics specific to the relations between the parties. Like all the agreements of this type, it contains: a human rights clause, recognised as an essential element of the Agreement; provisions on political dialogue; provisions relating to the free movement of goods, services and capital; cooperation on economic, social, cultural and financial questions. This comprehensive cooperation agreement now covers all EC-Egypt relations. The previous agreements are null and void. It replaces the 1977 Cooperation Agreement.
