Even the possibility of tackling new areas such as justice and home affairs jointly has been discussed by EFTA and European Union ministers. The present report aims to review the main developments within and surrounding EFTA since the Parliamentary Assembly's last debate on the subject in April 1994 Resolution 1028 1994 ; Doc.
It has agreed to an "asymmetric" approach as regards the abolition of European Free Trade Association Annual Report duties and qualitative restrictions - with EFTA obstacles falling quickly but those of CEE countries to be achieved only after a decade-long transition period. The EEA helps the situation, and further assistance can be expected through the forthcoming work of the new World Trade Organisation, which oversees the new GATS system General Agreement on Trade in Services.
Even for Norway, which decided not to apply for membership following a negative referendum result in November 1994, the EEA has helped consolidate fruitful economic relations with the Union, including the three EFTA countries that joined.
There is no real need to recapitulate here EFTA's increasingly close relations over the years with the Union, culminating in 1994 with the entry into force of the European Economic Area agreement between the Union and all EFTA countries except Switzerland.
Full cumulation in the EEA context means that processing steps carried out in all countries within the EEA, added together, confer originating status on the final product, even if the intermediate product is a non-originating product. Nor are there common tariffs toward third countries, ie countries outside the EEA.
Earlier, free trade agreements were also established with Turkey 1992 and Israel 1993. It is heartening to note that the origin rules complications arising from Switzerland's non participation in the EEA were solved by the end of 1993, especially considering that country's very intensive trade relations with its surrounding European Union neighbours.
For many years it upheld precisely this mission, and in so doing it significantly contributed to European prosperity and international understanding. Other EFTA tasks include a deepening of the already established cumulation agreement with European Free Trade Association Annual Report European Union, and its extension to the whole of central and eastern Europe.
The Assembly, in conclusion, asks the member states of EFTA and the European Union further to adapt the cumulation agreement they have reached on a technical level, by which agreement materials originating from the European Union, EFTA and associated countries in central and eastern Europe can be combined within a large European free trade area - and generally do their utmost to ensure better market access for exports from central and eastern Europe to the European Economic Area.
In its relations with the European Union, including through the EEA, it should work to forestall any risk of re-emerging trade barriers within Europe. However, this course of events seems less likely, in particular considering the historical ambition of most CEE countries to join the European Union as early as possible.

It is often forgotten that EFTA membership is as demanding, from the viewpoint of economic performance and market access, as is that of the European Union.
