ACP Diaspora: Platform for diaspora engagement in the world

Through the Platform, the considerable potential of the diaspora in terms of capital, knowledge and networks will be further leveraged through the diversification of strategic partnerships, as well as the establishment of appropriate policies and targeted programs.
