Harlem Désir welcomes EU-ACP partnership 2010

Harlem Désir expressed his general support for the Partnership between the European Union and ACP countries, but stated that the historically special relationship should not be lost by the need to comply with certain rules, for example, of the WTO.In particular, the partnership should maintain coherence between the Union’s policies as a whole – commercial and budgetary – and development objectives in ACP countries, including the promotion of peace, security, democracy and human rights. Rather than imposing a model, the EU should work with these countries to help create their own, sustainable development. In this perspective, the review of the partnership is a valuable opportunity to address recent and current crises in the last five years: climate change; technology transfer; development assistance in renewable energy; food insecurity, and thereby greater emphasis by the Partnership on agriculture, food sovereignty, financial abuse, good fiscal governance and the fight against tax havens. Mr Désir added that he could relate to all these points.
