After the consultations at regional level with African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, EU’s Chief Negotiator Neven Mimica and Togolese Minister Robert Dussey met in Brussels on 23 May to discuss the outline for the future ACP-EU agreement.
The so-called Cotonou Agreement that is currently governing EU-ACP relations is due to expire in 2020. Negotiations on a new ACP-EU Partnership were launched in New York on 28 September 2018 in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly.
The EU and ACP negotiating teams work on the agreement that covers all 79 countries (also referred to as “the common foundation”) while talks on the specific regional partnerships progress.
