Piebalgs to attend the signature of the revised Cotonou Agreement

On 22 June, Commissioner Piebalgs will attend the joint EU-ACP Council of Ministers in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The EU and 79 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) States will sign the revised Cotonou Partnership Agreement, which was initialled last 19 March. They are also expected to adopt joint statements on the Millennium Development Goals and on climate change. This should strengthen the EU and ACP countries position in the upcoming international negotiations, such as the UN High Level Summit on MDGs in New York in September and the UN Climate change conference in Cancun in December. As part of the bilateral visit, Commissioner Piebalgs will meet with President Compaoré and inaugurate the "avenue of Europe" in Ouagadougou.
