Consultation Open From 18/1/05 to 2/3/05

The European Commission is seeking views from a wide range of stakeholders on the most important issues that should inform the revision of the current European Community development policy. A new policy proposal will be made in the first half of 2005, aimed at providing a vision for long term reflection and positioning of the Union
in the international development debate, as well as a framework to guide the implementation of EU development assistance. The Commission is therefore launching an internet consultation in order to reach the widest possible range of development partners. Starting today, the consultation will run until 2 March 2005 with results to be published by April 2005.

EU-ACP/LDC informal meeting on sugar

In the afternoon, the Council held an informal meeting with ministers from the ACP and LDC sugar producing states to discuss the proposed Action Plan to assist them to adjust to the new situation after the planned reform of the EU’s sugar regime. Commissioner Fischer Boel stressed that the reform was now urgent and that she hoped for a political agreement before the WTO ministerial meeting in Hong Kong in December. She said the EU was fully aware that this would have knock-on effects for the ACP countries. Commissioner Michel stressed that the EU would help the countries to adapt on the basis of the actual needs of the countries concerned (see IP/05/85). Commissioner Mandelson underlined that preferential access to the EU market for ACP producers would be an important part of the Economic Partnership Agreements currently being negotiated with the ACP states.

states. Activities in following areas may be funded: the rule of law,
democracy, fundamental rights, the non-partisan nature of information, or
the fight against corruption in the context of EC policies and of
implementation by the 10 member states of community law.

NGOs in member states, other than the 10, may participate in initiatives
which aim at building or improving the capacity of NGOs in one or several of
the 10 member states, in the above-mentioned areas. In this case, the
project lead organisation must be based in one of the 10 new member states.

Deadline: 15 February 2005
