EU Fact Sheet: Trade regimes applicable to developing countries

The EU’s trade and development policy is outlined in the 2012 communication on ‘Trade, growth and development’. Least developed countries (LDCs) benefit from the Everything But Arms scheme, while the Generalised Scheme of Preferences has been reformed and Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA) for ACP countries replace preferential treatment for non-LDCs.
