Unilateral Preferential Arrangements

The European Union Market

The Gambia was a signatory to the Cotonou Agreement, which until 31 December 2007 governed bilateral preferences granted by the EU to African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) States. The Gambia continues to access the EU market under the Everything But Arms (EBA) Initiative offered by the European Union for exports from the Least Developed Countries. Almost all Gambian products, including its major export products (groundnuts, cashews, fisheries, vegetables and fruits), can be exported to the EU market under the EBA. Government will therefore continue to urge Gambian producers to take advantage of these arrangements to enhance production and growth.

Preferential duty rates from other Developing Countries

The Governments of India, Brazil and South Korea also offer preferential duty rates for products from Least-Developed Countries (LDCs) including The Gambia. Gambian producers can therefore export almost all domestically produced products including cashews, groundnut products and fish fillets to the Indian, Brazilian and South Korean markets duty-free and quota-free.
