Risk assessment of Ghana-EU iEPA implementation

The interim Economic Partnership Agreement (iEPA) between Ghana and the European Union (EU) is a development-oriented free trade agreement which provides duty-free and quota free access for Ghana’s exports to the EU, while Ghana will progressively liberalize its imports from the EU. On the EU side, the liberalisation process started just after the signing of the iEPA by the parties, in 2016. On Ghana’ side, the first step of liberalisation was initiated mid-2021.
During the iEPA implementation process, a scrutiny is needed to permit the early detection of negative effects of imports of EU products on any of Ghana’s industries and products and inform the government of Ghana to take appropriate countermeasures. In this regards, International Economics is conducting a risk assessment study for the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MoTI) to strengthen Ghana’s capacity to implement the iEPA.
