Deputy Minister Luwellyn Landers attends the 100th Session of the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group Ministerial Meeting
The Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa, Mr. Luwellyn Landers, arrived in Brussels today to attend the all-important 100th Session of the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group Ministerial Council Meeting schedule for 11-14 December 2014.
This historic session of the Ministerial Council will consider the final report on the future perspectives of the 79 member strong ACP Group. Changing global circumstances have dictated that the group reinvents itself and carve a new, dynamic independent identity.
The meeting will also serve as a platform for an exchange of ideas on poverty eradication and sustainable development within the rubrics of on-going debates for a Post-2015 Development Agenda and a Climate Change compact.
While in Brussels, Deputy Minister Landers will pay a courtesy call on the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belgium, Mr. Didier Reynders, to strengthen the already flourishing bilateral ties of friendship and cooperation that happily exists between the Republic of South Africa and the Kingdom of Belgium.
