Europeans and Mauritanians have today begun a joint commission in Brussels to evaluate the agreement. It is the most important bilateral fisheries agreement for the European Union (EU) from the economic point of view. The Spanish fleet calls for improvements in access to the waters of the North African country. Representatives from the EU and Mauritania will meet until Friday to discuss the fisheries agreement, which proves interesting to the Spanish fleet. The agreement with the African country is the main EU protocol from the economic point of view. It offers licenses for about 56 Spanish ships and concerns the fleet of Andalusia, Galicia and the Canary Islands. In return, the EU pays EUR 57.5 million per year to Mauritania.

The Westmoreland Municipal Corporation Local Government Adaptation to Climate Change Project, valued at some $48.3 million, was officially launched at the Maud McLeod High School in Darliston, Westmoreland on Saturday. The project has received a $39.6 million sponsor from the European Union (EU), while the Westmoreland Municipal Corporation pumped in the balance of $8.7 million. The official launch was attended by European Union Delegation Project Manager for Jamaica, Bahamas, Belize, Turks and Caicos Islands, the Cayman Islands, Vanna Lawrence; Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie, Westmoreland Eastern MP Luther Buchanan, custos of Westmoreland Rev Hardley Perrin, mayor of Savanna-la-Mar Bertel Moore, among other local representatives.

Italy has turned to its homegrown African entrepreneurs for help in easing the economic pressures driving hundreds of thousands of migrants onto the country's southern shores. In a small initiative billed as symbolically significant, Rome's foreign ministry this week unveiled a programme under which business people with African roots are offered financing to pursue job-creating projects in their countries of origin. Struggling with the financial, logistical and political pressures generated by the influx of more than half a million migrants in the last four years, Italy's centre-left government says Europe must do more to create the kind of opportunities that will keep ambitious young Africans at home.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders informs that Belgium sends B-FAST with relief supplies and a water purification unit to Dominica. This island in the Caribbean was heavily damaged by hurricane Maria. Belgium’s intervention comes in answer to a request for assistance from Dominica. A team of 15 persons will bring the goods to the island. They will remain there about a week. They will install the water purification unit and hand it over to a local manager. The team will also deliver medical kits from the World Health Organisation. This action takes place within the international aid structures, those of the United Nations as well as those of the European Union.
