This ERO paper looks at the current profile of Namibia's exports to the EU, the issues arising in future market-access negotiations and the impact of CAP reform on these issues. It highlights the extent to which CAP reform has already significantly eroded the value of trade preferences in the beef sector. It then goes on to consider the challenge of reciprocity facing Namibia under the EU-South Africa TDCA and asks what measures can be established to help Namibia respond to the challenge. It reviews the fiscal implications of the EU-South Africa TDCA for Namibia, showing that a 8.6% reduction in government revenues is likely. It ends with reviews of Namibia's experience of CAP distortions in the beef sector, and the possible scope of agricultural safeguard provisions in the context of on-going CAP reform.
