OUR ACTIONS

NEWSLETTER


As a permanent representation of a community of producers and exporters of fruits from Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana, the association aims to defend their interests to the European and international institutions. AFRUIBANA thus promotes bananas and other African fruits through various actions:

  • Promote the development of trade relations between Africa and the European Union through the export of African fruits to the European Union.
  • Play the role of interface between the producers of the sector and the various European institutions in order to facilitate the financing and aid programs for the African fruit producers.
  • To defend the quality and importance of the agro-industrial sectors on the African continent, in economic, social and environmental terms.

These different actions lead us to defend very concrete objectives:

  • Stabilizing the tariff regime applied to imports of bananas and no longer accepting the progressive reduction of customs duty below €75 per ton for the benefit of non-ACP countries.
  • Maintaining the safeguard clause beyond 2019 which allows a suspension of preferential treatment, in the event of a sharp increase in imports of bananas from Central American countries beyond of a certain threshold.
  • Extending beyond the Banana Accompanying Measures (BAM) the financing of support programs for the banana sector aiming to improve its competitiveness and sustainability.
