Southern African Trade Database Workshop

Windhoek, Namibia

TIPS will conduct a Southern African Trade Database workshop on 21 June in Windhoek, Namibia as a follow-up to the workshop held in 2006, but this time the focus will be on the updated SADC trade data and the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) negotiations, as well as on agricultural trade by SACU members and the SADC EPA Group.

Agriculture remains a contentious sector at both multilateral negotiations and even more so within the SACU Secretariat, and will no doubt continue to be a feature of the EPA negotiations. The Southern African Trade Database, developed by TIPS with funding from AusAID, will be used as an input to assess the implications on SACU.
