EPA trade negotiations and poverty*


Last Monday, the MOT-programme of YLE asked whether EPA trade deals 
between EU and developing countries will increase poverty. The programme 
showed that African governments and farmers are very concerned and 
disappointed with the European - and Finnish - negotiation tactics. See:

Come and hear whether African civil society organisations agree. Malcolm 
Damon, a South African civil society campaigner will present the views 
and work of Southern African CSOs on Wednesday 15.10. at 16 -- 17.30. 
The meeting will be held at Kepa, Töölöntorinkatu 2A.

Programme:
- Short briefing on EPA negotiations and the main concerns of civil 
society organisations (Tytti Nahi, Kepa's advocacy officer)
- African civil society view on the risks and opportunities of EPA 
negotiations (Malcolm Damon)
- Discussion on EPAs and poverty & opportunities for us to influence the 
negotiations
