Reinhard Bütikofer is a Member of the European Parliament from the Green group. He is the rapporteur of a recent report on raw materials that was approved by the Plenary. In our interview, he speaks about the implications of the EU raw materials strategy and of his report on Africa.

A special guest at the Committee of Ambassadors last week highlighted the powerful potential for partnership between the ACP Group and Africa’s major development organization.
