Ninth ACP-EU ministerial meeting in Brussels

The ninth meeting of regional and national ACP-EU ministers in Brussels, preceded by a meeting of high officials, focused on the examination of the second revision of the ACP-EU partnership agreement. It further focused on the impact of the economic and financial crisis on ACP countries and domestic responses to it, budget support for ACP countries and the state of implementation of development objectives. The meeting, which was considered worthwhile by participants, allowed stakeholders to analyse the constraints in the approbation of programmes and in the application of approved resources within the framework of the strategic partnership established between the group ACP and the EU, and also allowed for the formulation of conclusions concerning the future of the Cotonou agreement. During the forum, the Angolan Planning Minister, Ana Dias Lourenço, reminded participants that the European Development Fund (EDF) was a cherished instrument in the fight against poverty in the ACPs, but that those programmes established by recipient countries should also be respected.
