16th Regional Meeting (Central Africa Region) of the ACP-EU JPA

In keeping with article 17 of the Cotonou Partnership Agreement and article 6 of the Rules of Procedure of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA), the parliamentarians from the Central Africa Region of the ACP Group and their European counterparts met in Yaoundé (Cameroon), from 17 to 19 July 2018. They expressed their gratitude to the Government and the National Assembly of the Republic of Cameroon for the organisation of this meeting and the steps taken to ensure its success. In their opening remarks, the co-presidents noted the progress made in the preparations for post-Cotonou negotiations and welcomed recent developments, which resulted in both parties adopted their negotiating mandates. The meeting reiterated the appeal for the preservation of the unity and solidarity of the ACP Group and the need to conduct negotiations in the context of a single undertaking. The meeting, while acknowledging the concept of regional peculiarities, held the view that these should help to strengthen the unity of the Group. They also noted that regional organizations are the main actors in Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), which should serve as both catalysts for growth and mechanisms for the strengthening of good governance. They congratulated Cameroon, the only country in the region to have signed the (interim) EPA between the EU and the Central African community, while noting the role of EPAS in the strengthening of economic development cooperation and the integration of ACP countries into world trade.
