Saint Christopher and Nevis. In August, Prime Minister
Denzil Douglas reformed his government to concentrate work
on the most important issues: national security, state
finances, the labor market, social development, information
and technology. Douglas took over responsibility for
national security, immigration, foreign policy, sustainable
development, tourism, sports and culture.
Countryaah reports, the Cotonou Agreement was replaced in the autumn with a
new Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the EU and
Saint Christopher and Nevis. EPA meant that tariffs and
import duties on the EU market were almost completely
eliminated for goods from the Caribbean. At the same time,
the agreement meant that until 2033 Saint Christopher and
Nevis would gradually eliminate most of the import duties
from the EU.
