Deepening Engagement in the EU-SADC EPA Roll-out
This Report on Botswana forms part of a major research project whose purpose is to gather detailed information on the SADC – EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) from the start of the negotiations, signing of the Agreement, to the present moment. The information is intended for the benefit of Non-State Actors (NSA), who have indicated that they were not adequately involved in the EPA process. The research critically examines and highlights key issues, weaknesses and gaps in the process. It also identifies opportunities and challenges, as well as implications of the EPAs on individual SADC EPA economies and the region and recommends priority areas for NSA participation in the process.
