Agreements of the EU

European Union Trade Agreements.

The EU is the largest global trade player: 20% of global trade.

China  is the second-largest trading partners of the EU after the U.S..

The main objectives of the EU Free Trade Agreements are:

  1. To open new international markets for products and services;
  2. To increase the Foreign direct investment (FDI) flows;
  3. To make the international trade cheaper (eliminating customs duties);
  4. To make the external trade faster;
  5. To make the policy environment more predictable.

Each Free Trade Agreement negotiated by the EU is adapted to the situation of each nation.


“The more ambitious the Free Trade Agreement is, more benefits are to be gained from the agreement.”

The EU has granted duty-free access for most of the imports from the developing countries (Generalized system of preferences).

The EU Free Trade Agreements: Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Tunisia, Palestine, EFTA, South Korea, ASEAN, GGC, Central America, Andean Community, MERCOSUR, Chile, Mexico, Turkey, India, China, Lebanon, Algeria, CARIFORUM, Ivory Coast, and Georgia.
