Come and join the European Development Days on 6 and 7 December in BrusselsOn 6 and 7 December, the European Commission will organise the 5th edition of the European Development Days (EDD) in Brussels, in cooperation with the Belgian Presidency of the European Union.

Member states are nearing a deal on new food labelling rules that would leave wiggle room for industry to use their own labelling schemes and choose whether to show nutritional information on the front or back of a product's packaging. The 27 EU ministers in charge of consumer affairs are set to reach a political agreement on the proposal at a meeting next Monday (6 December).

Prime Minister Bernard Makuza, has urged the European Commission to accelerate the negotiations of the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) and come up with a conclusion as soon as possible. The Premier, made the call during the 2010 Africa-European Union Summit in Tripoli."African countries have been involved in the negotiations of Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the European Commission for almost a decade," Makuza said."

President Jacob Zuma says the economic partnership that Africa entered with Europe 10 years ago has not produced the intended results for both regions."We are concerned that after ten years of this partnership we have very little to show in terms of tangible implementation of the undertaking we made in both Cairo and Lisbon," he said at 3rd Africa-European Union Summit which ended in Tripoli on November 30.
