"European Union–Developing Country FTAs: Overview and Analysis"
by Francois, Joseph, Matthew McQueen and Ganeshan Wignaraja


Abstract
This paper explores the complex structures of recent free-trade agreements (FTAs) between the European Union and developing countries, surveys the main factors determining their economic effects, and presents quantitative simulations of the effects of these agreements. Limitations of product coverage substantially reduce the potential benefits of the agreements compared to full bilateral free trade, while only the Mexico, Chile, and Turkey agreements have trade related commitments which are wider and deeper than the preferential reduction in tariffs. In the case of Egypt, existing levels of protection mean that it is moving toward regional free trade with many domestic distortions still in place, producing a significant loss for the Egyptian economy.
