CARIFORUM-EU: New strategy on the horizon

During the course of recent talks in the Dominican Republic, the EU and Caribbean Forum (CARIFORUM) countries stated that a new strategy which outlines greater cooperation between the two regions could be soon finalised. Managing Director for the Americas of the EUs European External Action Service, Christian Leffler, told EU and CARIFORUM officials that the two regions have had an excellent record of cooperation over the years.
According to Bilaterals, Mr. Leffler also said that the relationship has been evolving from a classic, old-style, post-independence relationship based essentially on development cooperation and preferential trade arrangements, to a far more mature multifaceted relationship between equal partners who choose to work together on a whole range of issues in political, economic, social, commercial and developmental areas. “The strategy is coming very close to completion and I am sure before very long we will be celebrating a simultaneous adoption in Europe and in the Caribbean”, he stated.
