Lodewijk Briet, the EU's ambassador to Kenya, said in a statement that the EU had "fast-tracked" approval of the deal and called it a "Christmas gift for Kenyan exporters." "I am very happy to confirm that, as of Christmas day, Kenyan goods - cut flowers, fresh produce and much more - will once again enter the European Union market without tariffs or quota limits," Briet said. About a third of Kenya's flower sales come in the two weeks leading up to Feb. 14 each year, according to the Fresh Producers Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK). Briet said 200 billion shillings ($2.21 billion) worth of goods are exported from Kenya to Europe each year, making the EU Kenya's largest export market.

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya is currently in discussions with the European Union (EU) in order to get a refund on duties paid for the country's exports to the EU since Oct. 1, a government official has said.
Kenya, together with the other East African Community (EAC) partners states have been negotiating with the EU for more than a decade for a new trade agreement to replace the previous regime.
Kenya is ranked as a developing country.
Under the new GSP system, Kenyan flower exporters must attach a form indicating the origin of the flowers to benefit from duties that go as high as 8.5 percent. Only carnations exported to the EU from Kenya do not attract duty under the GSP.
EU Head of Delegation to Kenya Lodewijk Briet said that the EPA's will open 100 per cent of EU's market to EAC goods. "However, the EAC will open its markets gradually to the EU," he said.

"We have pledged some £9 million to help deal with Zimbabwe's cholera epidemic, now spilling over into South Africa," said Amb Lodewijk Briet, the head of the delegation of the European Commission to South Africa.
"We stand ready to make available additional resources for reconstruction on the achievement of an internationally acceptable political solution in Zimbabwe."
He was speaking at the launch of a constitutional rights programme in Johannesburg, a joint initiative by the department of justice and the EU to create awareness of people's legal rights.
"In this context, I believe that it is pertinent to flag the issue of Zimbabwe where untold human misery, destitution and hunger are increasingly threatening to destabilise the wider region," said Briet.
