Fairtrade is possible outside of the EU

During “Fairtrade fortnight”, UKIP MEPs William Dartmouth & James Carver, have made a joint statement to show  how the UK’s commitment to fair trade can flourish best, outside of the EU:-


William Dartmouth MEP, UKIP’s trade spokesman commented; EU tariffs  prevent developing countries from trading their way out of poverty.  Instead, EU trade policy ensures that these countries remain aid dependent. To give one specific example, the EUs acquisition of fishing rights from African countries continues to destroy the livelihood of many fishing communities - The EU fails to practice what it preaches.


James Carver MEP, UKIP’s Commonwealth Spokesman added:- “The detrimental affect of EU trade policies, is not only confined to developing states.” Highlighting the case of New Zealand, where opposition to a proposed EU free trade agreement is gaining momentum, Winston Peters, a leading opposition New Zealand MP stated that the proposed agreement, would decimate New Zealand’s agricultural sector - “Outside of the EU, we can take a fair and fresh approach to trade agreements on a level playing field - Something that will never exist within the confines of the European Union.”
