ACP, EU lay groundwork for pivotal Joint Council meeting in Dakar

The Draft Agenda for the upcoming ACP-EU Joint Council of Ministers, scheduled for the 28-29 April in Dakar, Senegal has been endorsed by Member State representatives from the European Union as well as the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group. The Joint Council of Ministers is the highest decision-making body of the ACP-EU Partnership, which brings together 28 Member States of the European Union and 78 from Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific, under a legally-binding framework outlining parameters for trade, political dialogue and development cooperation between the two groups of countries. At a meeting of the ACP-EU Committee of Ambassadors on Friday 4th March, members agreed that the 2030 global development framework will have a significant bearing on future cooperation. “The ACP Group is of the view that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), constitutes a comprehensive approach that aims to achieve sustainable development for our Member States. It is important that concrete measures be taken to align our priorities, and better position ourselves to implement the 2030 Agenda successfully,” stated the Co-President of the ACP-EU Committee of Ambassadors, H.E. Roger-Julien Menga, Ambassador of the Republic of Congo. “The European Union is absolutely committed to continue to play a full, active and constructive role in the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, in cooperation with all partners and stakeholders. It is very important to ensure that the ACP-EU Partnership be brought in line with the Sustainable Development Goals,” stated Co-President H.E Pieter de Gooijer, Ambassador of the Netherlands.
