The next CTA Brussels Development Briefing on “Fighting against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IUU): Successes from ACP countries” will take place Monday, 27 October 2014 (8h45-13h00) at the ACP Secretariat, 451 Avenue Georges Henri, 1200 Bruxelles, room C.

IUU is a major challenge and concern for ACP countries, a number of which have faced sanctions under the EU’s IUU Regulation.

The Briefing will focus on the successful cooperation, engagement and initiatives undertaken by a number of ACP countries with key partners, notably the European Commission, in order to combat IUU and regain market access for their fisheries products into the EU market.

This Briefing is meant to be a follow-up to the 2009 Briefing organised by CTA on “Fighting against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing: Impacts and challenges for ACP countries” in order to measure the progress achieved in fighting IUU.

To attend the Briefing, please make sure you register here.

The European Parliament on Wednesday (22 October) approved the new EU commission led by Jean-Claude Juncker, with 423 votes in favour, 209 against and 67 abstentions. Fifty-two MEPs did not vote. 'If there is any loser it's me, I delegated a lot of powers to the vice-presidents,' Juncker said. Back then, commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso's team was voted in by 488 to 137, with 72 abstentions. In 2004, the first Barroso commission also had more votes than Juncker: 449 votes to 149, with 82 abstentions.

Nigerian cocoa-processing companies say the cost of exporting their products to Europe has been inflated by 30 percent because of a stalemate in agreeing new trade terms with the European Union. Nigerian cocoa butter and cake exports are charged from 4.2 percent to 6.1 percent of freight-on-board values as taxes at EU ports without an agreement, Felix Oladunjoye, executive secretary of the Cocoa Processors Association of Nigeria said in a phone interview today from Lagos, the commercial capital. Nigeria is the only country in West Africa yet to sign the Economic Partnership Agreement protocol on free trade by the EU and African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, he said.
