Réunion du 12 Novembre 2020

Lors de sa réunion du 12 Novembre, la délégation a procédé à deux échanges de vues : le premier avec la DG DEVCO, le SEAE et le Président de la Délégation PE à l'AP Eurolat, sur l'impact de la pandémie de Covid-19 dans la région. Cet échange de vues a permis de faire le point sur la spécificité de la région Cariforum et les lourdes conséquences payées par ces pays, mais aussi sur l'assistance multiforme, de court et de long terme, fournie par l'Union européenne. Le second échange de vues, avec la DG TRADE, a porté sur l'état de mise en œuvre de l'Accord de Partenariat Economique, et les propositions de recommandations - contenues dans une étude à paraître prochainement - qui pourraient guider sa mise à jour.

This exchange of views focused on the specificities of the Cariforum region and the heavy consequences for these countries, but also on the multifaceted short and long term EU assistance. The second exchange of views with DG TRADE focused on the state of implementation of the Economic Partnership Agreement, and the draft recommendations - from a study to be finalised soon - for its possible update.

An informal meeting with Ambassadors from the Cariforum countries was hosted by the Chair of the Delegation to the Cariforum-EU Parliamentary Committee, Mr Stéphane Bijoux, on 12 December 2019. This first introductory meeting was an excellent opportunity for the newly elected delegation chair Mr Bijoux and other delegation members to meet the heads of missions of Cariforum countries and to discuss future cooperation and common interests between the two regions.
