Delegation defends trade status in Brussels
News Type: Expo News
Cambodia earlier this month sent a goodwill mission to Brussels to clarify European lawmakers to keep the Kingdom’s current preferential trade status with the European bloc intact, according to a statement released yesterday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Cambodian delegation, spearheaded by Sok Siphana, an economic adviser to the government, was organised following a report from the European Union in April that highlighted human right abuses in the Kingdom and hinted at the possibility of cutbacks in the Everything-but-arms (EBA) treaty, a scheme that gives Cambodia duty-free access to the EU market.
The European report noted a “list of issues”, which include worries over the deteriorating situation of human rights in the country, the shutting down of media outlets, and the worsening democratic atmosphere, particularly after the dissolution of the main opposition, the CNRP, in November.
