In Samoa, EU and its member states sign new Partnership Agreement with the Members of the Organization of the African, Caribbean and Pacific

The EU and its member states have signed a new Partnership Agreement with the members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) that will serve as an overarching legal framework for their relations for the next twenty years. This agreement succeeds the Cotonou Agreement and will be known as the “Samoa Agreement”. The agreement covers subjects such as sustainable development and growth, human rights and peace and security.

The denomination of the Agreement was agreed at the 46th session of the ACP-EU Council of ministers, which took place right before the signature ceremony, also in Samoa.

The new Partnership Agreement lays down common principles and covers the following priority areas: human rights, democracy and governance, peace and security, human and social development, inclusive, sustainable economic growth and development, environmental sustainability and climate change, and migration and mobility.

A press release, with more information, is available online.
