Period of consultation

Objective of the consultation

The European Commission and the European Union External Action Service have decided to launch a broad public consultation on the key questions pertaining to the partnership and relations after 2020, between the European Union (EU) and the members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP).

In this regard, it is important to take stock of the current Partnership Agreement, to explore the extent to which it remains valid for the future and offers a platform to advance joint interests. A thorough review is needed of the assumptions, on which the partnership is based, of its scope, instruments and ways of working.

The outcomes will form a major component of the analysis and as such contribute to set out policy proposals for the future relationship.
