    Abstract

    Beneath multilateral Agreements like the WTO agreement the EU evolved different Trade Agreements to induce European integration, perpetuate economic relations with former colonies and to improve relations with developing, emerging and transitional countries by granting trade preferences. Common features of the EU preferential agreements are as follows: • covering general trade, • allowing a phasing-in period with a fast implementation in non-agricultural sectors except for textiles, • granting preferences for sensitive products of agri-food sectors (e.g. sugar, beef, bananas, dairy products) in terms of tariff rate quotas (limited imports by reduced MFN rates), • implementation of special safeguards because CAP is regarded as ultimate objective and addressing more qualitative aspects like common standards, SPS, property rights, institutional settings as well as investment environment.
