Trade Agreement Between South Africa And Mauritius

The agreement was the first regional EPA in Africa to be fully operational after Mozambique began implementing the EPA in February 2018. Mauritius benefits from the Generalized Preference System (GSP) offered by Japan, Norway, Switzerland, the United States and the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia. Mauritius is a member of the Common Market Free Trade Agreement for South and East Africa (COMESA) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The Oceans Commission of India (IOC) brings together Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion and Seychelles to promote diplomatic, economic and trade relations between the islands. Currently, only products traded between Mauritius and Madagascar in accordance with the IOC`s rules of origin are granted duty-free access. Mauritius has a free trade agreement with Turkey and a preferential agreement with Pakistan. Mauritius is also eligible for trade preferences with the European Union under the Interim Economic Partnership Agreement. During apartheid, Mauritius had only one trade mission to Johannesburg, the country`s commercial capital. [2] In August 2009, four of these countries signed the agreement (Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles and Zimbabwe). They have been applying it on an interim basis since May 14, 2012.

Comoros signed the agreement in July 2017. It ratified and began implementing it in February 2019. In January 2013, the European Parliament approved the agreement. The agreement remains open to other countries that wish to join at a later date. With regard to the rules of origin protocol, the CEPOL committee decided in January 2020 to change the concept of original products to facilitate and facilitate exchanges between the ESA region and the EU. The amendment, which came into effect in March 2020, allows economic operators to be more flexible while reducing costs. The United States and Mauritius signed a Framework Agreement on Trade and Investment (TIFA) in September 2006. It will be a formal mechanism to resolve bilateral trade issues and strengthen and expand trade and investment relations between the two countries.
