Kenya’s exports of cut-flower ornamentals to the United Kingdom could be subject to additional tariffs by the end of this year if the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) is not ratified.  The Kenyan parliament has refused to ratify it citing certain clauses that have raised concerns from some stakeholders.  A section of parliamentarians consider that the EPA, having been adapted from that of the East African Community (EAC) and the European Union (EU), should be ratified with other member states doing the same.  

The Kenya-UK trade deal worth £1.4 billion signed on December 8, 2020 provides Kenyan businesses duty-free access to the UK market. Meanwhile, Kenya will start phasing out duty and quota barriers on a set number of UK products 12 years after the EPA has come into force.
