Doing Business with Europe: how your business can benefit from the Central Africa-EU EPA

This page describes past events and is no longer updated.

Over 200 Central African and European businesspeople, civil servants, parliamentarians and civil society representatives gathered to explore the potential benefits of the Central Africa-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) during a one-day seminar held on 3 December 2011, in Yaoundé (Cameroon), within the framework of the PROMOTE business fair.

DG Trade and the EU's Delegation in Cameroon hosted a one-day seminar in December for over 200 businesspeople, civil servants, parliamentarians and civil society representatives from the Central African region, as well as European investors.

Together they looked at the state of play of the regional negotiations, the agreement's contents and explored how to put the EPA to work for their businesses - increasing exports, attracting more outside investment, and thereby driving growth and jobs in Africa.

The seminar was the first such region-wide event targeting businesspeople directly. Participants and speakers included CEOs and senior figures from well-established Central African business organisations, as well as from EU Member States' regions.
