Cabo Verde and the EU will expand their special partnership to new areas, such as renewable energy and strengthening of the private sector. The partnership which began in 2007, shall now include renewable energy and will encourage collaboration with various partners, as well as Member States of the EU. The special partnership was based on six areas – good governance, regional integration, technical and regulatory convergence, security and stability, knowledge society, fighting poverty and supporting development. As part of the upcoming Special Partnership and Europe Day, on 9 May, Cabo Verde and the EU will host several political, cultural and educational activities in Praia and Mindelo, on the island of São Vicente.

Portugal and Guinea-Bissau shall begin bilateral formal consultations on the Strategic Cooperation Plan for 2015-2018 to be signed next July. The new strategic cooperation programme with the country shall amount to around €40 million. The mission to Guinea-Bissau also includes the president of the National Energy and Geology Laboratory (LNEG) of Portugal, Teresa Ponce Leão, who will deliver the geological map of the port of Bissau to the government, a document that may help with work to develop the capital’s port.
