Trade in Services Negotiations and the Private Sector: Generating Opportunities for Development  


Nairobi Safari Club, Nairobi, Kenya
26-28 February 2009

The East African Business Council (EABC) and International Lawyers and Economists Against Poverty (ILEAP) convened the workshop: Trade in Services Negotiations and the Private Sector: Generating Opportunities for Development from 26-28 February 2009 in Nairobi, Kenya.  Over the course of three days, stakeholders drawn mainly from the private sector met to discuss issues and options for priorities in services export development in the context of the EPA trade in services negotiations.  The interactive workshop also served as an opportunity to sensitize the private sector on trade in services talks under the EPA.  More specifically, the workshop sought to:

  • Facilitate a better appreciation of the state of play on services in the EPAs and assisting in the identification of associated opportunities and challenges ahead;
  • Promote enhanced involvement of the private sector based on specific sectoral knowledge (both EAC and international); and
  • Support discussions on a roadmap for the continued involvement of the private sector in the EPA trade in services negotiations.
