African trade ministers criticise EPAs

At a meeting of the Ministers of Trade of the Member States of the African Union in Kigali, Rwanda at the beginning of November, ministers published a declaration
strongly criticising the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) which the EU has been
trying to negotiate with countries in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) region for several years. The process has been fraught with controversy, including accusations that EU negotiators have tried to bully ACP states into signing
unfavourable trade agreements.
