THE recently endorsed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the country and the Republic of China on Taiwan on quality infrastructure cooperation will heighten the implementation of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) European Union (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA).

THE recently endorsed Memorandum  of  Understanding (MoU) between the country and the Republic of China on Taiwan on quality infrastructure cooperation will heighten the implementation of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) European Union (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). 

After the SADC-EU EPA came into full force on October 10, 2016 the country was left with a rigorous task of implementing it.

 Speaking during the EU-government EPA Trade and Investment seminar held on December 1, 2016, Pretoria based EU expert on Trade Promotion Godinez Aguirre De Carcer Ines said there was a need for the Kingdom to be branded as a country that produces high quality products.

“This is because the EU is a big, complex organisation, with stringent public and private standards that also require trustworthy suppliers,” she said. She said there was also a need to help and capacitate Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to also benefit from the agreement through technical support, especially on quality standards, principles of fair trade and economic support.
