LNB 6: The future of Lomé’s commodity protocols: Fiddling while rum burns?
On 18 May 1999, ECDPM and the Caribbean Council for Europe (CCE) organised a seminar in Brussels on the future of the Lomé commodity protocols, with financial support from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. ACP and EU experts, representatives of governments and international organisations participated in their personal capacities; their views did not need reflect the formal positions of any party.

Adam Dunlop and Carl Greenidge provided useful comments.
