Deputies adopt report of 31st Session of ACP-EU JPA

The National Assembly Members Tuesday adopted the report on the 42nd Session of the ACP Parliamentary Assembly and the 31st Session of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly held in Windhoek, Republic of Namibia, from 8 to 15 June 2016. Tabling the report before lawmakers, the National Assembly Member for Banjul North, Hon. Alhagie Sillah, the head of the delegation, said the ACP-EU JPA brings together MEPs and MPs from 78 European Union (EU) and the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) States that have signed the Cotonou Agreement, which is the basis for ACP-EU cooperation and development work. He added that the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly was created out of a common desire to bring together the elected representatives of the European Community - then members of the European Parliament - and the elected representatives of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP countries) that have signed the Cotonou Agreement.Hon. Sillah further said that since the entry into force of the Treaty on European Union and EU’s enlargement, the Assembly has acquired and played a more prominent role in promoting human rights and democracy and the common values of humanity.This has produced joint commitments undertaken within the framework of the UN conferences, he added.
