Egypt

As part of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (Euromed), Egypt has an Association Agreement with the EU, which grants it:

  • duty-free access to the EU market for manufactured goods
  • preferential treatment for agricultural, processed agricultural and fisheries products.

Other trade-related agreements between Egypt and the EU:

Egypt is covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy, specifically by an Action Plan which aims at further liberalisation of trade with the EU.

Egypt is also a signatory of the Agadir Agreement with Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia as a step towards creating a Euro-Mediterranean free-trade area. It also has free-trade agreements with Turkey and with EFTA countries.

Egypt qualifies to join the Pan-Euro-Mediterranean system of cumulation of origin, but has not yet signed or ratified the Convention.

Egypt is a member of the World Trade Organisation (since 1995).
