About us - structure and organisation

Since 1978, the EU in Cabo Verde has been promoting relations between the European Union and Cabo Verde in the framework of the 2000 Cotonou Agreement and complemented by the establishment of an EU/Cabo Verde Special Partnership (2007) and a Mobility Partnership (2008) by facilitating a policy framework for enhanced dialogue.

The European Union has stood alongside Cabo Verde since its independence, in 1975. The relationship between the two parties is governed by the Cotonou Agreement and was strengthened by the Special Partnership in 2007, the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP+) and decentralized cooperation with civil society and municipal authorities.
Cooperation between the EU and Cabo Verde has an undeniable impact on the people of Cabo Verde and Europe because of its longevity, breadth and relevance, and because it is based on shared values.

In 2017 we celebrated ten years of the Special Partnership and we strengthened this relationship by extending it to new areas of work. Our partnership relationship is especially rooted in strong human, cultural and economic ties. Cabo Verde is a reliable partner and an example of stable democracy and good governance.
