aye to option 1.

although we would suggest the EIM minimize the ERAs in the future. the common external tariff is useless if everyone is exempt from that
Call me Greg (my IRL name) or UDCS. Whichever works best for you XD

Postby The East African Commonwealth » Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:16 pm

Rais Nuru approaches the podium of the DEU Assembly and looks out at the representatives of the assembled nations in the Assembly Building. After clearing his throat he begins his speech:

As the first Representative of the Commonwealth to appear before this body I thank you for this opportunity and am honored by this invitation to speak before all of you. I am aware that you all have to address the concerns of your own continent so I will try to keep this as brief an address as possible. As you know relations between the African Continent and Europe have been rocky since the Independence of most of Africa from Colonial Rule. Some view Europe as the cause for all of Africa's problems from the colonial borders to the brutality of colonial rule in some former colonies. Some think that Europe has no business being in African affairs period outside of the colonial ones. Some within the Commonwealth adhere to this belief, but I am not among them. While Europe has its flaws and it has made its share of mistakes in the past the actions of Africa are its own, the rest of the world may have had some influence on the inner workings of the Continent but it was the choice of the people of Africa which led them to where they are today. Further, thanks to nations like France possible catastrophe in nations like Mauritania and Nigeria have been avoided and the regions are stabilized under the protection of Europe. It is my sincere hope that one day Africa will be able to stand on its own two feet, but for now much of Africa is divided and unstable.

The East African Commonwealth was what the people of Tanzania, Zambia, and Malawi came up with as a solution to this disunity and chaos. An old idea centered around the idea of African Unity and cooperation over a century old, but nevertheless a good idea. In the year since the 2nd Commonwealth Charter was signed the Commonwealth has prospered with support from the international community, Europe included. Even today Europe is a major trade and economic partner to the EAC and we would like to further this. The EAC is a developing nation and as such we welcome foreign investment in any of our sectors. Not only does this promote the development of the Commonwealth, but it helps ensure cooperation between Africa and Europe.

However, while economic support for the EAC is appreciated, the Commonwealth is far better off then most of Africa. Most of the continent is without power, fresh water, food, and medicine leaving millions in poverty. One of the EAC's long term goals is the establishment of a stable African Continent, and to do so we are requesting your help. As many of you are no doubt aware the EAC has been busy establishing the Amity Fleet, a global maritime administration focused on aid, exploration, and diplomacy. The branch of the Amity Fleet based in Mauritania and the EAC itself once operational in 2025 will be launching Operation Palisade, a continent wide initiative to improve the living standard across all of underdeveloped Africa. This operation would involve the establishment of small solar power plants that would both provide energy and purify water for the population of 22 regions across Africa. This operation is also working with the international agency Habitat for Humanity to establish stable buildings and homes for these areas. What I am requesting from Europe is material aid. Lumber, scaffolding, steel, computer chips, and anything else that can be used to build up and repair the damage that half a century of war has destroyed.

In addition to this operation the EAC will be launching two flagship programs from the Amity Fleet Academy following its completion in 2025. These two programs are the International Medical Exchange (IME) and the Global Education Initiative (GEI). The IME will focus on establishing an international medical organization that will allow for a quick response to both disaster scenarios and outbreaks along with a full time mission of improving the medical quality for citizens in underdeveloped regions of the world. The program is completely voluntary and open to anyone in the medical field. The GEI is similar but with a focus on teaching based jobs to educate students across the developing world to prevent radical ideas from taking root and develop an educated base for the nations in question.

The last item I will mention is the Amity Fleet Academy. While the Academy is funded by the EAC it is open to anyone who wishes to attend and service within the Amity Fleet is not required upon graduation though students will graduate with the certification to do so. Any nation that wishes to reserve slots within the Academy may reach out to the Amity Fleet to do so.

I very much look forward to establishing a stronger connection to the powers of Europe over the coming years and securing peace for our peoples. I will remain in Europe for the next week and will welcome any talks for furthering relations and improving ties between Africa and Europe.

The French Seventh Republic calls for a meeting of the DEU Assembly.


Firstly, France wishes to thank Rais Nuru for their address to this Assembly. They raised many valid points surrounding the state of world affairs, and their desire to see greater humanitarian assistance and development in Africa. The French Confederation continues to support governments across Francophone Africa, and beyond. We propose that the DEU Foreign Aid Council be extended the agency to act across the continent with the aim of facilitating this material assistance suggested by the EAC. Active conflict areas and regions directly requiring/requesting European emergency aid would remain the priority, however we can look to diversify our FAC approaches in the near future.

Ayes (Foreign Aid Council material aid for Africa): France

Secondly, the Seventh Republic proposes the following;

DEU EIM - Geographic Origin and Indications Policy

This policy covers all foreign exporters and European importers, with the aim of ensuring informed consumer choice when making purchases and streamlining the process of applying the common external tariff.

I. All firms seeking to import goods produced outside of DEU EIM signatory states are required to receive certification from a newly-established 'DEU EIM Trade Regulatory Office'. The same applies for foreign exporters seeking to export to the DEU EIM, and freight-shipping companies.
II. The DEU EIM Trade Regulatory Office may censure/fine freight-shipping companies, foreign exporters, European importers, state-owned corporations/enterprises, and individuals who violate the terms of this policy. Repeat or severe infractions may result in a permanent ban.
III. All goods produced outside of DEU EIM signatory states are required to be accompanied by papers approved by customs officials from the country of origin, any countries of transit, and the DEU EIM Trade Regulatory Office - these papers must include information such as compliance with European product standards, records of companies and addresses where the goods were produced/stored-in-transit, details of the intended seller/retailer within the DEU EIM, receipt of payment for the appropriate European tariffs, and evidence that the foreign exporter/European importer is certified.
IV. All goods produced outside of DEU EIM signatory states are required to be clearly labeled during freight-shipping with a marker disclaiming its nation of origin - consumer goods must keep this label even upon entry into the EIM.
V. All goods produced outside of DEU EIM signatory states are required to respect the principle of geographical indication intellectual property.
VI. The DEU EIM Trade Regulatory Office will have a HQ in Strasbourg, in addition to field offices at major entry points into the DEU EIM, and the Suez Canal.

Ayes: France.

The French Seventh Republic calls a meeting of the DEU Assembly

European Clearing Union

- The European Clearing Union is established with the aim of streamlining trade and transactions between member-states.
- The European Standard Bank will administer the Clearing Union, by recording trade of signatories in the form of 'European Bancors', a unit of account as part of an average value calculated using a basket of currencies.
- The ESB shall monitor the creation of European Bancors through trade balances with the rest of the world, and their movement between member-states based upon trade within the EIM.
- Forbids European Bancors from being held, sold, purchased, transferred, created, destroyed, or altered to or by non-signatories.
- Schedules an annual European Bancor Rebate calculated by the ESB in case of any imbalances or negative externalities created within the EIM.
- Enables the common external tariff to float based upon the DEU EIM balance of trade to prevent negative externalities.
- Creates the Provincial Development Fund, which will act as a means of supporting regions within the DEU most vulnerable to the effects of trade-induced disruptions with the aim of preventing unsustainable debt-financed purchases.
- Safeguards the Emergency Containment Clause; all signatories may opt-out of the Clearing Union at any time, request a temporary suspension of participation within the clearing union, or freeze the clearing union. All of these measures, excluding the freeze, may be done even with only one nation's approval - no majority required. A freeze requires at least half of all signatories to approve.
- Guarantees that central banks of the member-states maintain full control over interest rates in addition to the physical notes and coinage of their own currency.

Please post, alongside your vote, whether your nation will opt-in.

Ayes: France, URT, GU.

"Our proposal has passed, and so the European Bancor now enters into existence. While its creation is now a certainty, we encourage member-states which have yet to participate in the new clearing union to do so. A historic day for Europe."

“The United Roman Triumvirate is proud to be among the first nations to adopt the European Bancor on this historic day, and we are committed to seeing it prosper into the future.”
