The Spanish Presidency promotes the signing of the Post-Cotonou Agreement


In the context of the EU-CELAC Summit, the Spanish Presidency has promoted the Post-Cotonou Agreement, a milestone in the relations of the European Union with the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP) that will promote sustainable development.

Thus, the green light is finally given for the signing of this agreement after years of negotiation and two and a half years since it was signed. Work now begins to develop a renewed cooperation agreement between 79 ACP countries and the EU.

The Post Cotonou Agreement is structured in a common way and based on three regional protocols, including a specific one for the Caribbean. It will focus on six priorities:

  • Human rights, democracy and governance.
  • Peace and security.
  • Human and social development.
  • Inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
  • Environmental sustainability and climate change.
  • Migration and mobility.
