The purpose of this study, is to evaluate possible economic repercussions of the trade facet, in Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), currently being negotiated between countries of the Common Market in Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and Member-States of European Union (EU). In so-doing, we have used two complementary models, the first one, based-on a general equilibrium approach, and the second, a partial equilibrium method. Indeed, multilateral trade agreements, will have implications trade activities, on the production of goods and factors, the price of consumer-goods, on the are of specialization of national economies, and their productive structure. Existing trade policy instruments also, will have direct and indirect effects on the market value of goods produced locally, or imported onto the markets of the COMESA sub-region.
