Acting Secretary-General Mr Achille Bassilekin III, Assistant Secretary-General for Sustainable Economic Development and Trade told the 23rd Session of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Parliamentary Assembly that these are challenging times for the ACP Group as a whole – as a number of issues and developments within and outside the EU framework have caused the Group to reflect seriously on its future.

The European Union has disbursed 140,000 euros (about 195,000 US dollars) for studies that will culminate with the construction in Mozambique of a regional centre for the monitoring, control and surveillance of illegal fishing.
