ECOWAS, PARTNERS TO HOLD MEETING IN ABUJA

							
	The 9th Annual Coordination meeting between ECOWAS and its Development 
Partners opens on Monday, 8th April 2013 at the ECOWAS Commission in Abuja, to 
discuss the status of the region’s integration projects and the ongoing 
efforts at institutional reforms in order to improve the performance of the 
Commission.

The meeting will also specifically discuss the Commission’s priorities, 
highlighting the programmes for deepening the integration process.

It will also enable the partners to reaffirm their renewed commitment to the 
various areas of ECOWAS intervention and strengthen the existing coordination 
mechanisms, particularly through the adoption of operational procedures. 

Furthermore, it will provide as an opportunity to shed light on the vision of 
the new management who will be participating in the coordination meeting for 
the first time and secure partner’s buy in. 

The international community has been deeply involved in resolving the security 
and political crises that rocked Guinea Bissau and Mali through support for 
ECOWAS’ response strategies.   

Their involvement has specifically helped in the consolidation of peace, 
security, democracy and respect for human rights, the creation of a common 
market, the enhancement of regional competitiveness, infrastructural 
development and food security, as well as partnership consolidation.

There will be thematic discussions on peace security, regional integration 
through sectoral programmes and capacity building during the three day meeting.
