CONCORD has serious concerns on the content of the revision of the Cotonou Partnership Agreement, but also on the lack of transparency of the process. A better involvement of the civil society in the EU and in the ACP countries in the process would not only enhance transparency and democratic participation and legitimacy, but also enable citizens to hold their governments to account.

At the 2995th Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held in Brussels on 22 February 2010, the Portuguese delegation, supported by Bulgaria, Finland, Romania and the United Kingdom, asked the Commission to propose exceptional measures for the sugar refinery industry, hence rebalancing the impact of the additional out-of-quota exports on the supply of raw sugar cane.
The world’s three major sugar-exporting nations – Thailand, Brazil and Australia – recently expressed their opposition to the European Union’s (EU’s) export subsidy on sugar, on the grounds that it affects prices and lowers other countries’ export volumes. The three countries have agreed on the possible filing of a case to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) if the EU does not review its policy.
The Kenyan government now says structural changes within the European Union (EU) are partly to blame for derailing negotiations on Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) whose set completion date was July last year. Trade Minister Amos Kimunya said that the government would meet EU officials to establish the impact of those changes to the EPA negotiations, adding, however, that the negotiations are still ongoing.
The Aid for Trade initiative highlights the support that developing countries, particularly the least developed, need to increase their capacity to benefit from the global expansion of trade. At the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Ministerial Conference held in Hong Kong in 2005, the international community mobilised and made financial commitments in favour of Aid for Trade.

The development of coherent and effective relations with other regions and countries is one of the most challenging tasks faced by the European Union. This original volume explores the EU’s engagement with the global South, focusing on three controversial policy areas: economic cooperation, development cooperation, and conflict management.
Jamaica is set to get another multi-million dollar grant from the European Union (EU), through the Banana Support Programme. Tomorrow, the EU Banana Support Programme through Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) will officially sign four additional grant projects.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) on Tuesday announced a 15 million euro loan to Mauritius sugar producer Omnicane, as the country faces the end of preferential European Union prices. Sugar firms on the Indian Ocean island have increasingly looked to diversify their products and cut costs after the EU announced a graduated 36 percent cut in its guaranteed price for African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) sugar.
The delay in the signing of economic partnership agreements by East African Community member states has aroused the ire of the European Union. The EU has described the situation as untenable and contrary to both EU law and World Trade Organisation rules. According to Mr Timothy Clarke, head of the EU Delegation in Tanzania, the deal needs to be sealed swiftly.
