ACP Ministers disappointed by the end of EU sugar quota

Sugar Ministers and senior officials from 27 African, Caribbean, and Pacific countries who attended the 13th African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Sugar Ministerial meeting in Sigatoka on Monday 14 October 2013 were keen to maintain their preferential access to the European Union and an extension of the EU's present quota system. They expressed their disappointment in the European Union’s (EU) decision to not extend the quota to the end of the decade. The European Union has chosen to abolish sugar import quotas by 2017, earlier than the previously planned 2020. The ACP sugar producers position was strongly supported by the European Parliament and other sugar stakeholders in Europe. In addition, the government reforms in the ACP sugar industries have been shown successful results.
