25 October, 11:12

    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, OCTOBER 25 - EU Commission proposes to extend measures on rules of origin that facilitate EU market access for Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Palestinian Territories and Tunisia until 31 December 2015. These measures continue to allow imports free of customs duty into the EU of products originating in these countries, without them having to levy full customs duty on imported materials used in the manufacture of these products. The measure puts production in these countries on the same footing with production in the EU and, as such, facilitates their market access to the EU and promotes their economic development. The Euro-Mediterranean Agreements establishing associations between the EU and its Member States, of the one part, and Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Palestinian Territories and Tunisia, of the other part, provide for the establishment of a free trade area between the EU and these countries. Amongst others, they provide that industrial products originating in the EU may be imported free of customs duty into these countries and that products originating in these countries may be imported free of customs duty into the EU.
