A statement signed by Mrs Rejoice Esi Asante, the Press, Information and Communication Officer of the Delegation of the European Union to Ghana and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra has indicated. The statement said he is part of a pool of three high level personalities made up of former members of the European Commission designated by the EU to support the Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid, Neven Mimica, by carrying out targeted outreach activities with key EU partners in view of the preparation for the future of EU-ACP relationship.

While in the country, Mr. Michel will meet with key Government officials and stakeholders to discuss the renewal of the Cotonou Agreement, both on the substance and the structure of the approach for bolstering it and to lay the ground for smooth and fruitful exchanges between the European Union and the ACP counterparts.
