Pacific ACP countries and CROP agencies high performers under EDF

The Acting Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Feleti Teo has congratulated Pacific countries of the ACP grouping within the European Union and members of the Council of Regional Organisations in the Pacific (CROP) agencies for their performance in committing funds under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF).At the recent 9th Ministerial meeting of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) National and Regional Authorising Officers (NAOs/RAOs) held at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels, Belgium, the ACP-EU Partnership, and particularly its Development Finance Cooperation component with all the Authorising Officers of the European Development Fund (EDF) resources in the ACP countries and regions, was discussed.One of the issues that was discussed were the results of the Midterm Review (MTR) of the National Indicative Programmes (NIPs) under EDF 10 and its relation with the implementation of the EU Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Initiative, which was announced by the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Durão Barroso, last year during the High-Level Plenary Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly ('MDGs Summit').  The EU then announced it was ready to offer to the most committed and needy countries an MDG Initiative amounting to 1 billion Euros to make progress on those goals that are furthest from being achieved.
