Southern African Development Community European Union Economic Partnership Agreement

Southern African Development Community European Union Economic Partnership Agreement

This booklet has been developed as a brief guide to the Southern African Development Community (SADC) – European Union (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) that entered into force in 2016, and to highlight opportunities that the agreement offers for Western Cape exporters to the EU. The EPA replaces SA – EU Trade, Development, and Cooperation Agreement (TDCA). The analysis in this booklet focuses on new and expanded duty free market access to the EU and other trade benefits under the EPA.

The agreement provides significant opportunities for agricultural, agri-processing, and fisheries sectors.
