Ethiopian PM: “EU to be more understanding to ACP’s needs”

On an official visit to the ACP Committee of Ambassadors in Brussels on Tuesday, April 16th, the Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia, H.E. Hailemariam Dessalegn, called on the European Union to be more understanding to the need of the ACP countries. He also stressed the need for a strengthening of the unity, the solidarity and the cooperation among ACP countries and regions.
“We must also recognize the importance of solidarity we had built amongst us in the ACP group and the need to strengthen it further. With such  sense  of solidarity, I am of the view that we would be better placed to rise up to the many challenges that we face as a group of developing countries with  limited capacity and resources at our disposal. Issues of global nature,  such as climate change, for instance, need solidarity in convincing the developed world to be committed to the efforts of mitigating the effects of carbon emissions”, he said.
As far as the ACP-EU relations are concerned, the Prime Minster of Ethiopia commended the dedication of the EU to the ACP cause but considered that “it is also high time that the European Union, as our traditional development partner be more understanding to the needs of ACP countries in their efforts to diversify their development cooperation, trade and investment ties with the emerging economies.”
The talk was held not only in Dessalegn’s capacity of Head of State of Ethiopia, but also as the current Chair of the African Union.
