New Lesotho Ambassador calls for stronger intra-ACP links

On July 25, in her first address to the ACP Committee of Ambassadors in Brussels, the new ambassador of Lesotho to the European Union, H.E Mrs Mpeo Mahase-Moila, urged African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries to intensify ties with each other, highlighting the private sector as the main engine for cooperation.
“The diversity of our Group as well as the geographical inclinations should not deter us at this point since we have been able to maintain our solidarity for the past years...[however] it is imperative that the barriers to inter and intra ACP trade relations are eliminated so that our countries can realise their own development opportunities... It is also my hope that the ACP would remain united in ensuring that the developmental objectives of the EPAs [ACP-EU Economic Partnership Agreements] are realised,” she told the gathering.
Lesotho welcomes initiatives such as the creation of an international trade and investment facility, as well as enhanced South-South cooperation with emerging countries, Ambassador Mahase-Moila told the meeting. At the moment, the ACP Secretariat is inviting feedback from stakeholders and the public on a recent feasibility study on the set up of an ACP bank for international trade and investment.
Ambassador Mahase-Moila is Lesotho’s former Minister for Justice, Human Rights, Correctional Service and Constitutional Affairs.
Lesotho is a country in Southern Africa, completely surrounded by South Africa.
