The ACP is a 79-member bloc which includes 40 least developed countries (LDCs) and 35 small island developing states (Sids). It was founded as an inter-governmental organisation in 1975. 

All members, except Cuba, are signatories to the Cotonou Agreement and share privileged relationship with the European Union under the ACP/EU Partnerships Agreement built on trade relations, development cooperation and political dialogue.
The last ACP Summit was held in 2008 in Accra, Ghana.
