EU and Development cooperation
A joint Committee meeting with national Parliaments was held on 26 June 2008 in the hemicycle co-organised with the National Assembly of Slovenia. The debate focussed on the "European Union and Development Cooperation" and the meeting was a follow-up to the first joint meeting with National Parliaments on development matters, hosted by the Committee on Development in October 2006. The opening speech was delivered by Louis Michel, Member of the EC in charge of Development and Humanitarian Aid. Statements were made by Josep Borrell Fontelles, Member of the EP, Chair of the Committee on Development, and by Milenko Ziherl, Member of the Slovenian National Assembly. The European Union is the key player as regards international development aid. Its development cooperation objectives are poverty reduction, sustainable economic and social development, integration into the world economy, the consolidation of democracy and of the rule of law, and respect for human rights. The foundations for these objectives are laid down in the Treaty establishing the European Community. The Union's development policy has developed gradually: it concerned at the outset only the overseas countries and territories associated with the Union and has now been extended to include all developing countries. These policies are one of the pillars of the Union's external relations, affording as it does a solution tailored to the needs of developing countries. The European Union's action in the development cooperation field is based on the principles of effectiveness of aid, coordination between Member States and international players, and consistency of European policies with development objectives. The "European Consensus on Development" defines the general framework for the action of the Union and Member States. In addition, the Union is particularly committed to honouring the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDG), for which the Union has put in place various instruments that will also help reinforce the impact of its action.
