The international community must spare no effort in the fields of security, humanitarian aid, establishment of the rule of law and the economic recovery of the CAR, the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA) said. It called on all political forces in the country to help bring about peace and economic recovery. Members backed the holding of parliamentary and presidential elections in February 2015 and suggested establishing a truth and reconciliation commission. The JPA's 27th session was marked by sharp clashes between ACP members and MEPs over the recent law against homosexuals in Uganda in the debate on the fight against AIDS. Members also discussed education and vocational training in ACP countries, the state of play in the WTO negotiations, renewable energies and climate change.

Mauritian President Rajkeswur Purryag has sharply criticised the plan by the European Union (EU) to abolish the ACP (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific) sugar quota regime from 2017, saying the affected countries will survive despite the EU action. He spoke at the centenary celebration of the Médine Camp de Masque Cooperative Society, in the east of the island, which groups about 500 farmers and cooperative members engaged in the cultivation of sugar cane. The President said the EU has forgotten that the ACP sugar-producing countries have supplied sugar to it (EU) for several decades.

Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Ambassador Irwin LaRocque has welcomed an €8.6 million euro programme to boost the Region’s agriculture sector. In his capacity as Secretary-General of the Caribbean Forum of African Caribbean and Pacific States (CARIFORUM), Ambassador LaRocque was one of four speakers at a signing ceremony of a Contribution Agreement on the 10th EDF Intra-ACP Agriculture Policy Programme for the Caribbean between the European Commission and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) at the European Union’s Delegates office in Georgetown, Guyana.
