The Lomé Convention – the world's largest development accord – defined the EU's relationship with much of the developing world for nearly a quarter of a century from 1975 onwards.

Published in the run-up to the 2000 talks on the successor to the Convention, this report looks at the issues around a new trade and aid regime based around a network of regionalised Free Trade Areas (FTAs) that would meet the terms of the global free trade rules enforced by the WTO.
