Mr. Chambas : “The EP has shown wise political judgment”

As we reported last week, the EP’s vote on the proposed amendment to Council Regulation (EC) 1528/2007, in which the ACP Group negotiating EPAs with the EU would be required to conclude these before 1 January 2014,  was a positive move for the ACP. Accordingly, the Secretary General of the ACP Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas stated that “the EP has shown wise political judgment in extending the period for negotiation of EPAs to 1 January 2016”.
Mr. Chambas stresses that “two year extension can help to facilitate a more serene environment to make balanced decisions beneficial to all parties.”
Yet, he hopes that the Commission will demonstrate such flexibility in order to resolve the outstanding contentious issues between now and 2016.
