On 10th of June, six countries from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) - specifically, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Swaziland - signed an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with the EU in Kasane, Botswana. Those SADC countries will now have to ratify the regional agreement before it can enter into force.
The trade deal secures access to the EU market without any duties or quotas for all members of the SADC EPA group, removing customs duties on 98.7 percent of imports from South Africa and eliminating them entirely for the other five countries.
