The future of ACP-EU relations

"The Cotonou Agreement remains unique in the world, and whatever form the next partnership takes, it will have to be tailored to today’s world, and include wider civil society participation and stronger parliamentary oversight and diplomacy », said Michèle RIVASI (Greens/EFA, FR), EU Co-President ad interim of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA) meeting in Windhoek, Namibia, for its 31st session. "As a school of democracy, the JPA must set an example. It remains a unique forum where all issues, including delicate ones, can be discussed”, added Ms Rivasi. At the opening of the 31st session, Netty Baldeh, JPA Co-President for the ACP countries, joined his European counterpart in thanking the National Assembly for its welcome. Ms Rivasi highlighted the “remarkable character of Namibia, a stable multi-party democracy with ambitious renewable energy policies in the context of COP21, sustainable development and conservation of flora and fauna.”
