Trinidad and Tobago nationals shaould be able to travel visa-free to the 26 European countries of the Schengen area as early as March this eyar. The Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Trinidad and Tobago issued a press release on bi-lateral talks held between EU officials and ministers of the Government. Minister of Foreign Affairs Winston Dookeran said “great strides” had taken place. “Minister Dookeran highlighted the great strides made regarding the conclusion of a Short-stay Visa Waiver Agreement with the Schengen countries of Europe, with both sides envisaging the finalisation of the Agreement by the first quarter of 2015,” the EU’s local spokesperson said in the statement.

The relationship between the European Union and Africa is deeply rooted in history, but has long been limited to the sole issues of trade and development cooperation through the Yaoundé and subsequent Lomé partnership agreements between the EU and the Africa-Caribbean-Pacific (ACP) group of states. More honest discussions of the core interests of both continents is needed. In a multi-polar world where there is an increasing interest to engage with a more attractive African partner, the EU should clearly stress its value added vis-à-vis other potential partners. Europe and Africa still do need each other.
