» Posted by on Dec 8, 2020 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

On 19 May 2010, Colombia and Peru concluded their free trade negotiations with the EU under the 7th European Union-Latin America and the Caribbean Heads of State and Government Summit in Madrid. The European Parliament approved the agreement on 11 December 2012. In early 2013, Ecuador decided to formally resume trade negotiations with the European Union. After four rounds of negotiations, the parties concluded negotiations on 17 July 2014 that enabled Ecuador to accede to the multi-party trade agreement between Colombia and Peru and Peru. On 23 September 2014, Ecuador and the European Union published the text of their trade agreement. On 12 December 2014, they launched the document between the two countries. Ecuador joined the EU-Colombia-Peru trade agreement on 11 November 2016. On 30 June 2015, the European Union, Colombia and Peru signed an additional protocol that will allow Croatia to be officially part of the agreement. All parties must complete their respective internal procedures for the protocol to enter into force. On 4 June 2013, the trade agreement was submitted for approval to the Colombian President. On 26 July 2013, the European Commission announced that the EU-Colombia trade agreement will enter into force on 1 August. The 1993 Framework Agreement identified a number of areas of cooperation and established joint monitoring committees and a subcommittee on trade, which continued their work. A joint commission (initially foreseen by the 1983 cooperation agreement) continued its work.

The chief negotiators of the European Commission, Peru and Colombia met in Brussels on 23-24 March 2011 to finalise the final texts of the agreement between the parties. The paraphetaisation is followed by a process of translation, signature and adoption of this agreement, so that it can enter into force. On 16 March 2012, the Council of the European Union approved the free trade agreement with Colombia and Peru. The agreement was reached at a meeting of the Trade Council. The agreement between Peru, Colombia and the European Union was signed in Brussels (Belgium) on 26 June 2012. In November 2010, Peru and the European Union met in Brussels to carry out a legal review of the bilateral free trade agreement. The free trade agreement is expected to be concluded in late 2011 or early 2012, after the agreement of their respective congresses. The agreement gradually opens up markets on both sides and increases the stability and predictability of the business and investment environment.

Ecuador`s accession negotiations to the trade agreement with Colombia and Peru were concluded in July 2014. Ecuador`s accession protocol was signed in November 2016 and has been on an interim basis since 1 January 2017. In this context, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru met with the EU at the end of February 2009 in Brussels to advance negotiations for a trade agreement.
