Conclusion of the SACU-Mozambique-UK EPA

Following the decision of the United Kingdom (UK) in 2016 to leave the European Union (EU), the Southern African Customs Union (SACU), Mozambique and the United Kingdom (UK) Ministers agreed to roll-over the Economic Partnership Agreement between the European Union (EU) and the SADC EPA States (EU-SADC EPA) into a new Agreement. The roll-over was on the understanding that adjustments may be needed to address specific matters.
