Spain signs new Country Association Framework with Palestine until 2024

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Arancha González Laya, signed the 7th Joint Committee and a new Country Association Framework (Spanish acronym: MAP) today with the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Palestine, Riad Al Maliki, which will remain in force until 2024 with a financial commitment of 100 million euros for this period.

25/06/2020

Spain was the first European Union Member State to formalise cooperation relations by signing the first Spain-Palestine Joint Committee back in 1993 on Cultural, Scientific and Technical Cooperation.

The new Country Association Framework, which will guide development cooperation between 2020 and 2024, commits to supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and identifies gender equality, economic development and job creation, together with the strengthening of public institutions and the defence of human rights in the geographic areas of Gaza, Area C of the West Bank and East Jerusalem as priority fields of action.

The Country Association Framework signed today is the seventh version between Spain and Palestine. The degree of achievement of the results on development and commitments to date is extremely satisfactory for both parties.
 
In February 2019, talks began with the Palestine Government and civil society to identify a new Association Framework, which culminated in today’s signing and which will place special emphasis on job creation. In the dialogue and meetings held, most of the parties to Spanish Cooperation took part.
