Prime Minister of Togo addresses the ACP Committee of Ambassadors

The Prime Minister of Togo, Hon Gilbert Houngbo, has become the second ACP leader to address the African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) Committee of Ambassadors in less than a month. Just two weeks ago, the President of Sierra Leone, H.E Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, addressed the Committee of Ambassadors in Brussels. In welcoming Prime Minister Houngbo, Secretary-General Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas said that the ACP Committee of Ambassadors was honoured to receive him describing him as a statesman who has devoted a substantial part of his career to promoting the cause of development. Dr. Chambas expressed how impressed he was with the Prime Minister’s unfailing commitment to economic and social development and on the improvement of the welfare of the Togolese people. Prime Minister Houngbo outlined the economic, political and social changes that his country intends to undertake. He reiterated the government plans to strengthen what has been achieved on the democratic front and focus considerable efforts on consolidating the structured sectors of its economy. On the ACP, Mr. Houngbo said the ACP Group has a unique characteristic of bringing together the largest number of developing countries in the world in a cooperation context – with the European Union. He, however, cautioned that the ACP-EU partnership is now at the crossroad and has reached a decisive step.
