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.
