Abstract

This paper reviews the negotiation of an Interim Economic Partnership Agreement for the Pacific group of the ACP (PACP). It begins with a summary of the existing trade agreements of the PACPs with their major trading partners, and considers the relative importance of their trade with the EU. It then reviews the various impact assessments which have been undertaken to inform the PACPs’ negotiations of an EPA, before turning to consideration of the progress of the negotiations themselves, identifying those issues which were to prove most problematic. It concludes by outlining the Interim Agreement, which was only signed by Fiji and PNG, and assessing the likely prospects of a Final Agreement being achieved by the end of 2008.
