EU and South Sudan ties to grow stronger

As we reported last December, though South Sudan is not yet a signatory to the Cotonou Agreement, EU Member States decided to bridge this current funding gap with an ad-hoc allocation from unused money of the 9th and previous EDFs to support the implementation of the three year Southern Sudan Development Plan (2011 to 2013).  Debating on South Sudan at the 3142nd FOREIGN AFFAIRS Council meeting, ministers welcomed the joint programming in Juba of EU and its Member States development assistance which is expected to provide almost €700 million for that period.
Notably, the EU reconfirms its commitment to continue cooperation with South Sudan on trade matters with a view to granting duty free, quota free access under the "Everything But Arms" arrangement as soon as the conditions are met."
