Meet Burkina Faso's only chocolate maker: Chef Andre Bayala is creating confectionery treats using everyday West African ingredients https://t.co/UDcHOhH6P6
@tomhfh Tom. This is very important. You are not the first, and will probably not be the last to mistakenly repeat this claim, based on a fundamental error made in this article. Calestous Juma failed to interpret the tariff schedule correctly and missed a rather important point. https://t.co/e2E4oJkzI3
@speakrphone @Reuters @Jim_Cornelius @EmporersNewC This map shows you the trade relationship between the EU and African countries. EPAs & EBAs & GSP grant dutyfree and quota-free access to EU markets Look up Everything but Arms Nearly every product from countries from Africa, both raw and processed comes into the EU tariff free https://t.co/zNErAvnp2d
@speakrphone @Reuters "The EU uses high tariffs to stop African countries to export finished chocolate products to z EU" They don't. The article is wrong and there a correction on it. Almost all cocoa is produced in Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire and they can both export to the EU tariff-free on all goods.
