Regional review: An EU paper on future relations is imminent

A green paper on the future relations between the EU and the ACP states was due to be published in October. The paper, prepared by the commissioner for ACP relations, Joao de Deus Pinheiro, is expected to outline the European Commission's proposals for a successor agreement to the Lome Convention, which expires in 2000. A move away from preferential trade arrangements towards a relationship recognising the more competitive international environment is likely.
