EU-Ghana endorse market access offer and schedule under Economic Partnership Agreement

The second meeting of the EPA Committee under the Interim Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between Ghana and the EU was held in Brussels on 29th November 2019.

The EPA provides duty-free and quota-free access to all Ghana's exports, agricultural or manufactured, to the EU market, while Ghana will gradually and partially liberalise imports from the EU.

The Parties endorsed the full market access offer and market access schedule of Ghana. Ghana will start to liberalise its market for EU products by the first quarter of 2020. The liberalisation schedule would be concluded by 2029.

The Parties also agreed on the final version of the Protocol on Rules of Origin and would adopt it officially through a written procedure in the first quarter of 2020.
