The case for an Agreement – EPA

Private sector representatives from Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire, as well as ECOWAS representatives, give their views on the Economic Partnership Agreement between West Africa and the European Union. They explain why they believe that the agreement will support the development of their business, and deliver on diversification and industrialisation. They also emphasise the usefulness of the agreement for agricultural exports and for small-scale manufacturers. They call for more discussion and ownership of the agreement within their respective countries and in the region.
