Great Arab Free Trade Area: Achievement and Constraints

In the framework of the Agricultural Policy Forum initiative promoted by the National Agricultural Policy Center (NAPC), with the support of Project GCP/SYR/006/ITA-Phase II funded by the Italian Government and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, a seminar on “Monitoring Implementation of the Great Arab Free Trade Agreement: Achievements and Constraints” was held in Damascus, at the Center’s premises, on 28 April 2004.

Ms Waficca Hussni, NAPC researcher, along with Mr Manfred Metz, FAO international consultant, presented the results of a monitoring exercise on the Great Arab Free Trade Agreement (GAFTA). It was shown how far the implementation of GAFTA has already gone, whether it works towards achieving the planned objectives of enhancing trade, integration and development in the Member Countries, particularly in Syria, and which are the obstacles that prevent GAFTA from being fully effective.
