EU-Ghana Stepping Stone Economic Partnership Agreement (A8-0328/2016 - Christofer Fjellner)

  Ivo Vajgl (ALDE), in writing. ‒ I voted in favour of the recommendation on the draft Council decision on the conclusion of the stepping stone Economic Partnership Agreement between Ghana, of the one part, and the European Community and its Member States, of the other part. Ghana and the EU are partners across different areas, including that of fostering regional economic integration and investment. In 2015, the total two-way trade between Ghana and the EU was worth 5.4 billion euros, comprising over 20% of Ghana’s external trade. As soon as the regional EPA enters into force, it will replace the two existing interim EPAs within the region. I voted in favour because I believe that the IEPA ensures to Ghana, a lower middle-income country, a 100% market access offer based on a long-term contractual relationship, which will ensure stability needed for new investments and job creation.
