South Sudan to join the ACP

The Republic of South Sudan  is set to  become the 80th member of the ACP Group, as its request  (March 2012) to accede to the ACP-EU partnership has been approved at the recent Joint Council of Ministers meeting in Vanuatu. In the meantime, South Sudan has been granted observer status in the partnership.
Speaking of the world’s newest nation, Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Hon. Christian Friis Bach, who represented the EU Presidency at the ACP-EU Joint Council, said: “The EU welcomes the request from South Sudan for accession to the ACP-EU Partnership agreement. We do believe that South Sudan is characterised by a structural economic and social situation comparable to those of ACP States and it fulfils the criteria for accession to the agreement.”
