The Cariforum-EU Economic Partnership Agreement provides for the establishment of an Advisory Committee to monitor the agreement through economic and social partners and representatives of civil society organizations. Its main task is to make recommendations on the economic, social and environmental aspects of relations between the EU and the CARIFORUM countries, as they arise in the context of the implementation of the Economic Partnership Agreement.
The composition of the Advisory Committee shall be determined by a Joint Council in order to ensure a broad representation and consultation of all interested parties. It consists of representatives from CARIFORUM countries and the EU, including EESC members.
When it is the EU's turn to act as secretary of the Advisory Committee, the EESC is in charge (every two years).
