The Permanent Representative of Equatorial Guinea to the European Union and the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), Ambassador Nvono-Ncá, has participated virtually, due to the health alert situation, in the Committee of Ambassadors of the OEACP, one of the most important decision-making bodies of this international organisation, whose headquarters are in Brussels.
Throughout the committee, issues of enormous importance were discussed, such as the status of the post-Cotonou Agreement negotiations with the EU, the general framework for the EU’s relations with the countries of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific. It is the most comprehensive association agreement between developing countries and the EU and covers the EU’s relations with 79 countries, including 48 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, such as Equatorial Guinea.
The Cotonou Agreement is based on development cooperation, economic and trade cooperation and the political dimension and its objective is to reduce and eradicate poverty, as well as to contribute to the gradual integration of the ACP countries into the world economy. Ambassador Nvono-Ncá considers this one of his priorities on the agenda.
