The country benefits from the European Development Fund with an allocated budget of EUR 17.1 million for 2007-2013 / 10th EDF which is still being implemented. Priorities include:

  • supporting the road sector
  • strengthening public finances
  • supporting the Economic Partnership Agreement and regional integration.

It allocates EUR 28 million to 2 priority sectors:

1) Water and sanitation

2) Reinforcement of agricultural chains

The country also benefits from a contribution from the PALOP/Timor Leste regional cooperation programme.

São Tomé and Príncipe has a Fisheries Agreement with the EU since 1984 and a Fisheries Partnership Agreement since 2006.
