Commending the robust collaboration between the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and Germany, Mrs. Damtien Larbli Tchintchibidja, Vice-President of the ECOWAS Commission, presided over discussions aimed at enhancing political cooperation and development on May 22nd, 2024, in Abuja, Nigeria.

Advocating for an intensified bilateral partnership in forthcoming years, Mrs. Tchintchibidja emphasized the need to review progress made since November 2023, with a keen focus on areas such as economic and political dynamics in West Africa, peace-building, conflict resolution, pandemic prevention, healthcare, governance, social protection, climate action, renewable energies, and energy efficiency.

Highlighting the existing collaboration as a testament to the fruitful outcomes achievable through mutual support, Mrs. Tchintchibidja expressed ECOWAS’s commitment to leveraging partnerships like that with the Federal Republic of Germany to advance regional integration, foster a common market, and cultivate a safe, secure, and prosperous ECOWAS region.
