Following the presentation of the study “Leveraging Information and Communication Technology for the BoP– Innovative business models in education, health, agriculture and financial services”, which took place in Brussels, we met Jean-Marc Bellot, Head of the Brussels representation office of the  Agence Française de Développement (AFD). He explains to us how the ICT can help farmers to get  the so-called “fair price”.

The next Brussels Development Briefing will take place on the 22 February 2012 and will be organised in partnership with the African Union, the European Commission (DG DEVCO) the ACP Secretariat, Concord and various media partners.
The Briefing will provide an overview of the main challenges affecting the pastoralists, especially in the ACP countries, and the opportunities provided by existing continental and regional policy frameworks and processes. It will then focus on sharing good practices and experiences from the field across regions. We will also identify what urgent and concrete policy actions need to be in place to increase support pastoralism.
The Briefing will be fully webstreamed in English and French. To learn more, to register for the Briefing and to follow the webstream on22 February (from 8h30 a.m. to13.00 p.m. CET) please visit brusselsbriefings.

Following the Fiji Government’s decision to lift the Public Emergency Regulation with effect from Saturday 7th January 2012, the Secretary General of the ACP Group of States H.E Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas, has recently said that this was a significant move which should pave the way for inclusive internal consultations leading to credible elections and restoration of constitutional rule. Furthermore he said the ACP Secretariat stands ready to provide appropriate technical expertise and support to Fiji towards pursuing constructive dialogue with the European Union in the context of the formal consultations under Article 96 of the Cotonou Partnership Agreement, at an appropriate time as it has done in the case of other ACP countries in recent times.

According to Eurostat, the first estimate for euro area1 (EA17) trade with the rest of the world in November 2011 gave a 6.9 bn euro surplus, compared with -2.3 bn euro in November 2010. The October 2011 balance was +1.0 bn, compared with +3.1 bn in October 2010. In November 2011 compared with October 2011, seasonally adjusted exports rose by 3.9%, while imports remained stable.
