Jamaica joins ACP sugar producers meeting in London

Executive Chairman of the Sugar Industry Authority of Jamaica, Ambassador Derrick Heaven, says at meeting of the London Sugar Group successfully strengthened the collaboration within the group, which is seeking to influence European governments and the European Union (EU).The London Sugar Group represents the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and Least Developed Countries (LDC) sugar industries, which supply the European Union. The meeting was held at the Jamaican High Commission in London, ahead of the start of a series of meetings of the International Sugar Organization."We continue to rely on the EU markets as the most important export market for our sugar. The need to collaborate with other countries, that export (to the EU) under the same terms and conditions, to protect our interest is paramount. We looked at just how we are going to influence Brussels to live up to their obligations to us, which sometimes can get lost if we are not careful," Heaven said.The EU and the ACP have negotiated market access arrangements specific to sugar, under the new regional Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA), which run from October 2009 to September 2015.
