Pacific Countries examine future relations with EU post-2020

The Eminent Persons Group (EPG) of the African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries are meeting for the first of a series of six meetings in Samoa the 17-19th of October. This is the first in a series of six regional consultations to solicit the views and secure positions of member states on the outlooks of the ACP Group after 2020.
The meeting this week will focus on the Pacific countries’ perspective and involvement with the ACP countries. EPG member, Mr Kaliopate Tavola, former Minister of Foreign Affairs and former Ambassador to the European Union (EU) from Fiji, hopes for a solidarity among the states. The Pacific states are also hoping to contribute more to the ACP in terms of competencies in areas such as fisheries, climate change, economic growth, and development in those nations. The ACP hopes to introduce some new framework to continue to meet the needs of the member states, and begin to look forward to future contributions.
