Guyana: Details Of EPA Hid From Region

Guyana Thursday said Caribbean Community (Caricom) negotiators allegedly hid details of the Economic Partnership Agreements with the European Union that would put the region at a disadvantage.

Guyana’s Cabinet Secretary, Roger Luncheon, said apparently negotiators at the Caribbean Regional Negotiating Machinery decided to release only part of the impact of the EPAs to the 14 independent Caricom member-nations and the Dominican Republic.

“I don’t want to go to the logical conclusion that they hid this from us or they underestimated our ability,” he told at a news conference

Guyana’s President, Bharrat Jagdeo, has refused to sign the EPA on July 15 in Barbados, until after country-wide consultations and discussions, expected to start late July, or if Europe decides to impose higher tariffs on Guyanese exports.
