Delegation of the European Union to Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tomé-et-Principe and CEEAC
Relations between Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome-and-Principe, ECCAS and the EU
The partnership between the European Union (EU) and Gabon is based on political dialogue, trade and development assistance.
As there is currently no EU delegation in Equatorial Guinea, the EU delegation in Gabon is currently undergoing accreditation by the authorities in Equatorial Guinea. The fact that there are representative EU countries there guarantees EU representation of a role at local level (as was the case before the Treaty of Lisbon).
The European Union (EU) is one of the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe’s most important partners. Their relations are based on a regular political dialogue organised in accordance with the Cotonou Agreement.
The Cotonou Agreement also governs the relations between the European Union (EU) and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), although the ECCAS is not in fact a signatory.
