Argh! @BBCr4today talking crap about why we have “huge tariffs” on “African countries” & whether we can lower tariffs.

This is ignorant. 33 African countries have ZERO tariffs to EU - coz they fall under “Everything But Arms” agreement.

Also, on top of this the EU has various deals with African regions in development, aimed at helping Africa integrate into global trading system (EU is Africa’s biggest trading partner)

Here’s the West Africa deal- incl Nigeria where May’s been visiting:…
The EU has *huge* interest in the economic development & stability of Africa... especially given the proximity and immigration issues.

With these trade deals, I understand EU even planning to invest to help African producers meet EU quality levels to help boost exports to EU.
