EEC development policy after Lome

Briefing/policy papers

This paper considers the implications of the adoption of a major new policy statement by the European Economic Community (EEC) Commission for Development. The paper notes that the first practical test of the new policy, which includes aid increases, will be in the renegotiation of the Lomé Convention. The paper argues that although the statement contains a number of positive proposals, several crucial items, of pressing concern to developing countries, are passed over.
