ACP: Brexit impact evaluation

The Pacific Island Forum Secretariat has been tasked to undertake an assessment of the implications of Brexit on the African, Caribbean, Pacific group of states (ACP). This was agreed by ACP leaders and officials in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia at their meeting on Thursday ahead of the 47th Pacific Island Forum Leaders meeting. Brexit is the withdrawal of the Britain from the EU, as a result of a June 2016 referendum whereby 52 per cent voted to leave the EU. At the meeting, the secretary general of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Dame Meg Taylor encouraged the strategic engagement of leaders in identifying the key elements that would form the region's position in the upcoming discussion on a new ACP-EU Partnership post 2020. She emphasised the importance of ensuring that the Pacific region's priorities and key regional processes were taken into account in the development of the wider ACP priorities for post-Cotonou discussions. She reaffirmed the commitment of the Forum Secretariat in supporting member states in progressing ACP issues and in the implementation of the Pacific Regional Indicative Program under the 11th European Development Fund.
