Foreword

The Lomé IV Convention, which provides the framework for development cooperation between the European Union (EU) and 71 African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) developing countries, is to expire in the year 2000. Negotiations on a successor arrangement are scheduled to begin in September 1998. The form it takes will be crucial to many of the ACP countries, particularly those dependent on the special trading arrangements of the Convention for the terms of market access for their principal exports.
