The EU is a key partner of the Democratic Republic of São Tomé e Príncipe. Relations are based on regular political dialogue under the Cotonou Agreement.

The EU delegation in Gabon  monitors the country's situation since there is no EU delegation in São Tomé e Príncipe. The local EU presidency is held by Portugal (as it was before the Lisbon treaty).

The country benefits from the European Development Fund with an allocated budget of €17.1m. Priorities include:

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

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.
