EESC backs regional integration of ACP countries

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is calling for a more effective and active EU role in the regional integration of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries in order to aid their development. With these countries hard put to defend their economic and social interests in the teeth of globalisation, the EESC is encouraging regional integration as a means of capitalising on the benefits of the phenomenon while steering clear of its drawbacks.
