The EU delegation to Nigeria said the 6th edition of the European Union-Nigeria Business Forum will place emphasis on the role of young people in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and agribusiness. Filippo Amato, Counsellor and Head of Trade and Economics Section for the EU delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS disclosed this during a press conference in Lagos recently. The theme of the conference ‘Youth as an Engine of Broad-based Economic Transformation’ is apt, according to Amato, because it brings attention to a segment of the Nigerian population that has increasingly contributed to the economy of the country. The theme, he added, aligns with the forthcoming Africa Union and EU summit later this year.

In October 2017, European sugar quotas will be abolished. Mauritian sugar will thus face increased competition, given the liberalisation of the world market. Faced with this situation, what are the issues that Mauritian sugar needs to confront? How can it stand out in the market? Let’s take stock: in a month’s time, international competition will be drowning us in sugar. On 30 September, the European sugar regime will come to an end. This means a liberalisation of the market, which will put local and international cane sugar producers in the same boat, as well as beet sugar producers.
