Paragraph 9 Paragraph 11. Stabex. The Stabex (from French Système de Stabilisation des Recettes d'Exportation) is the acronym for a European Commission compensatory finance scheme to stabilise export earnings of the ACP countries.
It was first introduced in the second Lomé Convention (1979) with the purpose of remedying the harmful effects of the instability of export revenue from agricultural products. Stabex (along with similar mechanism for the mineral products– Sysmin that was provided for in the third Lomé Convention (1984)) was abolished by Cotonou Agreement in 2000. Yaoundé Convention. The Yaoundé Convention was a convention signed in the city of Yaoundé, Cameroon between the EC and ASMM (African States, Madagascar and Mauritius).
The First Convention (1964-1969) The first association agreement between the EC and the 18 African ex-colonies that had recently gained independence, was signed in Yaoundé on 20 July 1963 and entered into force on 1 June 1964. It was mainly based on the previous treaty between the EC and its overseas territories and had a validity period of 5 years. The Second Convention (1971-1975) After the first treaty expired, a new one was signed on 29 July 1969. External links MEMBER STATES. ACP–EU development cooperation. ACP States Development cooperation between the European Union (EU) and the countries of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007.
Although bilateral relations have always been and still remain one of the main features of modern development cooperation, it was the Treaty of Rome in 1957 which first established a collective European development policy. The Treaty of Rome granted associated status to 31 overseas collectivities and territories (OCTs) and provided for the creation of a European Development Fund (EDF) intended to grant technical and financial assistance to the countries which were still under European rule at the time.
More significantly, however, by means of the Treaty of Rome the six member states of the European Economic Community were expressing solidarity with the colonies and OCTs and committed themselves to contribute to their prosperity.
