    [From the Introduction]. If one compares the EEC's network of international activities since its inception to a set of circles organized in descending order of economic importance, Latin America as a whole would occupy a position just above those countries for which economic and political restrictions apply. The reasons for this low ranking are not difficult to discern. Among the six founding nations, France and Belgium had extensive colonial ties, while Italy and the Netherlands had lost all or most of their oversea's possessions. The British entry in 1973 signified an enlargement with a focus to a former empire and the subsequent emergence of the Lome Convention in 1975 provided a set of preferential treatments for the 66 African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries most of which were ex-colonies.
