At their recent meeting in Bamako, Mali, on the sidelines of the ECOWAS ministerial meeting on the EPA negotiations, the West African Platform of Civil Society Organizations on the Cotonou Agreement (POSCAO-AC) issued the following statement.
In January 2008, the Heads of State of West Africa expressed their desire to conclude a development-oriented Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). In order to turn this vision into reality, experts from West Africa, worked very hard.
The methodology used by ECOWAS was rigorous and the approach broadly inclusive involving all states and non-state actors in the region, including representatives of productive sectors. Even the European Commission was largely involved in this work.
