EPA negotiations: Where do we stand? Update 03.03.2008 www.ecdpm.org/epa www.acp-eu-trade/epa 1/37 EPA Negotiations: Where do we stand? Latest updates Available at www.acp-eu-trade.org/epa and www.ecdpm.org/epa by ECDPM, Maastricht (Netherlands), 3 March 2008 In 2008, a new crucial phase of EPA negotiations is beginning. ECDPM will continue providing the latest information on the state of play in each ACP region negotiating with the EU at dedicated webpages accessible via www.acp-eu- trade/epa and www.ecdpm.org/epa . Updates will no longer be weekly as in the final months of 2007, but we will still aim at making news available “as-it-happens”, drawing from various reliable sources of information. These spaces remain open for contribution and we invite all stakeholders and interested parties on ACP-EU trade relations to actively contribute, share or suggest any relevant piece of information on the on-going negotiations.
