The first meeting of its kind, the ministerial troika between the European Union and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), that took place on 10 November 2008 in Brussels, marked a new stage in the development of EU relations with the African regional economic communities. This ministerial troika, in addition to the European Union/African Union partnership, marked notable progress in relations and political dialogue between the EU and the African regional economic communities. Three issues were the heart of the discussions at ministerial level: regional questions, and particularly regional crises (Democratic Republic of the Congo, Chad and the Central African Republic); global issues such as the food crisis and economic development; and peace and security matters, with a special focus on the possible role for the European Union in ECCAS capacity building.
