Countries Involved:Africa Economic Institute Zimbabwe, Africa Economic Institute South Africa,
Area of Cooperation:Dairy products, textiles

A duty free regime or preferential tariff quota applies to items including dairy products, potatoes, birds, eggs. Specified types of woven fabric, for example cotton, are subject to concessional tariff rates when they meet the specified levels of Zimbabwean content: 75 percent in most cases. Most recent version of the agreement was signed in August 1996 at which time the tariffs and quotas on textile imports into South Africa were lowered.


Aims to encourage and stimulate trade between Zimbabwe and South Africa through the elimination of tariffs and other non-tariff barriers to trade.
