Last 9th April Mr. Piero Scarpellini (Director Pragmata Institute) together with Ms. Claudia Mularoni (CEO Pragmata Institute) and with Mr. Emmanuel Mailafia (Member of International Relations Department, Pragmata Institute) has met in Brussels the recently appointed Secretary General of the the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP), H.E. Patrick Gomes. The African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) is an organisation created by the Georgetown Agreement in 1975. It is composed of 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific states, with all of them, save Cuba, signatories to the Cotonou Agreement, also known as the "ACP-EC Partnership Agreement" which binds them to the European Union. There are 48 countries from Sub-Saharan Africa, 16 from the Caribbean and 15 from the Pacific. The aim of the meeting was to continue to move further with the cooperation between the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) and ACP Group of States, as results of the previous meetings between CEIBS  and the previous ACP Secretary General, H.E. Mumuni.

For this reason, also Ms. Annette Nijs, Executive Director of CEIBS Global Initiative and Chair of the Executive Council of Africa Foundation for Governance and Leadership, attended the meeting. The outcome of the meeting was a big success because CEIBS and ACP Secretariat are now proceeding in developing the first steps of different forms of cooperation regarding the Education sector which for sure will bring ACP countries to develop better their economies and societies.
