We are looking for a motivated and dynamic blogger or journalist interested in policy development issues with a focus on trade and agribusiness between the EU and African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP). The job implies monitoring news, writing articles and conducting interviews of the major players in agricultural policy issues in Brussels and ACP regions.

The CTA Brussels News Service is providing EU-ACP policy news since 2004, on various key thematic areas. In addition to this news service, we also provide news on ACP intra-regional trade, and south-south cooperation (investments of emerging countries' in agriculture in the ACP regions). The main stories for the week are featured in our newsletter and all stories can be found in our Regional Trade and the South-South cooperation sections.

The partnership between the European Union (EU) and the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group needs to change to remain relevant after 2020. The European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) has released an independent political economy analysis study looking at the partnership that links 79 ACP countries with the EU, and mobilizes a large development budget of 30.5 billion euros. The current partnership is over 40 years old, and is underpinned by the legally binding Cotonou Partnership Agreement (CPA), which will expire in 2020. “Discussions on the future of the EU-ACP partnership beyond 2020 are currently in full swing, and the stakes are high.

The farming sector will receive 24 billion ariary of aid for this year, in the form of a grant offered to the Malagasy State by the French Development Agency (AFD) within the framework of the project to improve agricultural productivity in Madagascar (PAPAM). The agreement between the AFD and the Ministry of Finance and Budget was signed yesterday morning. The services will be spread over four years and will range from advice to the construction of hydro-agricultural infrastructures. They are supplied by means of the Centre for Agricultural Services and the Regional Funds for Agricultural Development (CSA/FRDA).
