Portugal's priorities during the rotating six-month European Union presidency in 2007, will be on improving relations with Africa and economic reform. Portugal enjoys close ties with its five former African colonies: Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde and Sao Tome and Principe, which gained independence from Lisbon in the mid 1970s. Portugal would also seek to revitalize the EU 10 year economic reform plan known as the "Lisbon Agenda" which was adopted during the last Portuguese presidency of the EU in 2000.
