EU-ACP for Sustainable Development

The annual meeting of EU and ACP ministers was held on 5 May 2017 under the co-chairmanship of Mr George Vella, minister of foreign affairs of Malta, president-in-office of the Council of the European Union, and Mr Abraham Tekeste, minister of finance and economic cooperation of the federal democratic republic of Ethiopia, president-in-office of the ACP Council of ministers.




EU and ACP ministers discussed the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Climate Change. They exchanged on their respective preparation processes and possible areas of convergence ahead of the upcoming global milestone meetings later this year: the high-level political forum on sustainable development in New York in July, and the 2017 UN climate change conference (COP 23) in Bonn, in November.
