ANALYSIS ON THE PICS’ DRAFT TEXT OF PACIFIC EPA
Prepared by Professor Jane Kelsey, School of Law, University of Auckland, New Zealand
15 October 2006
This is a preliminary analysis of the Pacific Islands’ draft text of the Pacific Economic Partnership Agreement and the EC’s ‘non-paper’ on services and investment. Legal provisions are paraphrased and not all are covered. The paper does not include the Partnership Agreement on Trade in Goods that only some PICs will negotiate. This analysis is offered as a contribution to ongoing discussion on the EPA. Corrections and comments are welcome.
