Zuma Disappointed At Europe-Africa Partnership

President Jacob Zuma says the economic partnership that Africa entered with Europe 10 years ago has not produced the intended results for both regions."We are concerned that after ten years of this partnership we have very little to show in terms of tangible implementation of the undertaking we made in both Cairo and Lisbon," he said at 3rd Africa-European Union Summit which ended in Tripoli onNovember 30. He cautioned the summit against committing on another Action Plan when commitments made in the past in this partnership have not been implemented.The slow pace of rural infrastructure development in Africa also hampered the marketing and movement of agriculture products from one region to another."Africa faces unique challenges with regard to agriculture and food security. These range from low productivity and poor infrastructure, to weak market access as well as weak institutions and policies."Nearly all of Africa's farming systems were dependent on rain-fed agriculture, and this makes our agricultural productivity entirely dependent on the environment and vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
