Hoarou calls for expansion of regional integration processes

MEP Elie Hoarau has been elected to become the second Vice-Chair of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly. During the 19th session of the Assembly, Mr Hoarau addressed a number of issues that affect both outermost regions of the EU and ACP states. On Saturday 27 March, the first working party of the outermost regions and ACP states met in the capital of the Canary Islands, Tenerife, under the aegis of the Regional Government of the Canaries. The primary objective of the meeting was to discuss the creation of an intra-regional market between the Canaries and West Africa. Mr Hoarau praised this initiative led by the Spanish presidency of the EU and announced that he would work towards the creation of two other working parties involving EU outermost regions and the ACP: the first covering the Indian Ocean and East Africa; and the second covering the Caribbean region. Mr Hoarau is also a member of the Committee on Economic Affairs, Finance and Trade, which met the same afternoon. Together with the representative from the Seychelles, he presented the conclusions of the EU Regional Strategy Paper for Eastern and Southern Africa and Indian Ocean. The conclusions were adopted unanimously by all members of the Commission.
