Calls for unity from ACP members

Taking into account the evolution of the Group’s relations with the EU and, accordingly, recent concerns, ambassadors from Samoa and Jamaica stress that unity and innovation among ACP members is needed. Additionally, as geopolitical shifts occur with the rise of emerging economies and current challenges such as climate change or food security, key discussions delve into the direction the ACP Group will take for the future.
Ms. Vilma McNish, Jamaica's ambassador to the EU, highlights that changes to the internal dynamics of the EU have been reflected in the EU’s approach to certain policies, a conclusion based on the latest communications from the European Commission on development cooperation, budget support, and trade and growth development.
In this regard, the newly appointed Samoan ambassador to the EU, Dr. Fatumanava Pao Luteru, warns that the 79-member Group will have to review both its relevance to its constituencies, and its value-added and strategic importance as a partner of the EU in the future. “The ACP-EU partnership is now at a crossroad. What is more worrying for the [ACP] Group, are the subtle and less overt signals emanating from the EU regarding their thinking for the future - signs of disengagement”, he states.
