This paper looks at the agreement establishing a Framework for an Economic Partnership Agreement (FEPA) between the East African Community (EAC) Partner states, on one part, and the European Community (EC) and its member states, on the other. This framework was put in place to comply with a deadline imposed by the WTO that the two parties should bring their trade relations in compliance with the WTO rules. The main objective of this bulletin is to review the compatibility of the FEPA with the current WTO requirements and to analyse the implications for development and poverty in Kenya.
