dc.descriptionThe final communiqué of the fourth ECOWAS-EU ministerial meeting highlighted the emphasis placed by ECOWAS on 'the need for support to improve competitiveness', against the background of the opening of the EU-West Africa EPA negotiations. Comment: Just how the EU will effectively measures to enhance the competitiveness of West African enterprises in the run up to the establishment of a free-trade area between the EU and West Africa remains to be seen. For ACP countries raised competitiveness is seen as a necessary precondition for the introduction of free trade with the EU. For the EU on the other hand the introduction of free trade is seen as an important instrument for promoting the improved competitiveness of ACP enterprises. This issue of sequencing is becoming an issue of critical concern, given the long lead times associated with the deployment of EDF resources.en_US
