ĀKK valstis un Āfrika

This page is also available in

Kopš pirmās Lomes konvencijas (1975. gads) līdz Kotonū nolīgumam (2000.–2021. gads) ES un ĀKK valstu partnerību reglamentēja attiecības starp Eiropas Savienību un Āfrikas, Karību jūras reģiona un Klusā okeāna (ĀKK) grupas 79 valstīm, kuras nesen apvienojās Āfrikas, Karību jūras reģiona un Klusā okeāna valstu organizācijā (OACPS).

Šajā laikposmā EESK kopā ar ĀKK valstu pilsonisko sabiedrību cīnījās par to, lai tiktu atzīta nevalstisko dalībnieku būtiskā loma attīstības procesā, līdz tas tika panākts Kotonū nolīgumā, ar ko EESK tika pilnvarota organizēt pasākumus un konsultācijas ar “ĀKK valstu un ES ekonomisko un sociālo interešu grupām”, lai apkopotu un paustu organizētās pilsoniskās sabiedrības viedokli. Mērķis bija veicināt apmaiņu un sniegt ieteikumus par jautājumiem un politiku saistībā ar ĀKK valstu un ES attiecībām; vēlāk šie ieteikumi tika oficiāli iesniegti ES un ĀKK valstu vadītājiem.

Praktiskā ziņā EESK pasākumi saistībā ar ES un OACPS attiecībām galvenokārt tiek veikti iekļaujošas ĀKK valstu un ES koordinācijas komitejas vadībā; minētās komitejas sastāvā ir EESK locekļi un ĀKK valstu ekonomisko un sociālo interešu grupu delegāti.

ES un ĀKK koordinācijas komiteja uztur regulārus kontaktus ar ĀKK valstu pilsoniskās sabiedrības pārstāvjiem dažādos līmeņos, izmantojot šādus līdzekļus:

  • ĀKK un ES koordinācijas komitejas regulāras sanāksmes,
  • reģionāli semināri ĀKK valstīs, nodrošinot forumu, kurā ar attiecīgā reģiona pilsoniskās sabiedrības pārstāvjiem apspriež kopīgu interešu jautājumus,
  • ĀKK un ES ekonomikas un sociālo interešu grupu trīsgadu kopsapulces Briselē.

EESK arī uztur regulārus kontaktus ar Āfrikas Savienības ekonomisko un sociālo interešu grupu pārstāvjiem ES un Āfrikas kopējās stratēģijas ietvaros. Konkrētāk, EESK katru gadu rīko sanāksmes kopīgi ar ES un Āfrikas ekonomikas un sociālās jomas ieinteresēto personu tīklu. 

EESK jau daudzus gadus ir uzturējusi regulāras attiecības ar ĀKK un ES Apvienoto parlamentāro asambleju, iesniedzot Asamblejas plenārsesijās ziņojumu par savu darbību.

Tāpat EESK cieši sadarbojas ar starptautiskajām darba devēju, darba ņēmēju, lauksaimnieku, kooperatīvu un patērētāju organizācijām. Minētās organizācijas izvirza ĀKK valstu pārstāvjus, kuri tiek aicināti uz EESK rīkotajām sanāksmēm, tostarp ES un ĀKK koordinācijas komitejas sanāksmēm.

The social economy is prominent in everyday life and in the productive activity of large regions of the world and makes a decisive contribution to improving the living and working conditions of millions of people. However, the social economy is not specifically recognised as a sector in the EU development cooperation programmes.One of the principal aims of the opinion is that the external dimension of the EU’s programmes and initiatives should establish support measures specifically targeted at boosting businesses and organisations in the social economy.
