Case Studies of Mediterranean Agreements

  • Alfred Tovias
Part of the Trade Policy Research Centre book series


Preferential arrangements concluded since the end of the Kennedy Round negotiations have, for the most part. involved the European Community and developing countries1 which were already de facto satellites of the Community, at least as far as their external trade was concerned. Since the aims and the legal structure were basically the same for all of these agreements, there is no point in describing the specific economic provisions of each one. Instead, this chapter provides two case studies. The first is the preferential agreement signed with Spain on 29 June 1970. This agreement exemplifies the type of privileged relation which the Community created in the 196os. The second is of the Community’s relations with Israel, a case that foreshadowed the new set of agreements which the Community has negotiated with some senior semi-industrialised countries, within the framework of the Mediterranean policy, the premises laid down by the Council of Ministers in November 1972.2
