ORDERLY CLOSURE OF THE CENTRE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ENTERPRISE ("CDE")

17/02/2015

The EU Member States and ACP States reached a joint agreement on an orderly closure of the CDE on 19 and 20 June 2014 in Nairobi, at the 39th meeting of the ACP-EU Council of Ministers.

In October 2014, the ACP-EU Committee of Ambassadors decided to mandate the CDE Executive Board to appoint a Curator and follow-up the closure process.

As from 22 January 2015, Mrs. Ilse Van de Mierop was designated as Curator of the CDE by the Executive Board. In this function, she also exercises all the powers which the CDE's legal framework attributes to the Director.
