The Honourable Nandcoomar BODHA, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade, intervened at the 9th Meeting of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) Ministerial Central Negotiating Group held on 11 June 2020.

 

The Hon. Minister seized this opportunity to denounce the unilateral manner in which the EU has placed several OACPS States on the EU list of High Risk Third Countries, especially at a challenging time when many Developing States are struggling to recover from the severe impact of the COVID 19.

 

He also highlighted that Mauritius had not been consulted before being included in the EU list.

 

The mandate of the Central Negotiating Group is to reach an agreed position on the ongoing Post -Cotonou negotiation, and Mauritius is an alternate member of the East Africa Group.
