The African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) and partners have wrapped up a symposium pledging to build new partnerships to empower women and youth.
The partners include Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), supported by the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP).
The two-day event saw governments, civil society, private sector and development partners debate the key issues of jobs and entrepreneurship, with a special focus on how the mechanisms of South-South and Triangular Cooperation can help bring about change in developing countries across the ACP region and beyond.
