On Tuesday 8 December 2015 the African Union Commission organised a special ‘Fridays of the Commission’ session on the future of ACP-EU relations – in partnership with ECDPM and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES).

The Cotonou Partnership Agreement links the EU to 79 countries in Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) and mobilises a large development budget of 30,5 billion euros for the period 2014-2020. It expires in 2020 and all parties are preparing their future positions.

For more information see:

Participants at the Friday’s of the Commission event discussed the added value the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) and the ACP-EU partnership brings for Africa as it moves forward with the UN Global Goals and Agenda 2063.

A report of the event was produced by the African Union and circulated at the 26th African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on the 27th January 2015. It is available here.
