Visit of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to Paraguay

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, went to Asunción to represent the EU in the ceremony of inauguration of Horacio Cartes, who was elected President of Paraguay in April this year.
While in Paraguay, Andris Piebalgs took stock of the country's progress and challenges and discussed priorities for future EU development cooperation.
Relations and cooperation between the EU and Paraguay have intensified during the last years, not only in development cooperation and trade but also through dialogue aimed at promoting shared values and principles. The deployment of an EU Election Observation Mission to Paraguay for the general elections on 21 April 2013 - which resulted in the election of Horacio Cartes, President of Paraguay, and Juan Afara, Vice-President of Paraguay - as well as the appointment for the first time of a Head of the EU Delegation based in Asuncion are signals of EU's commitment to step up its relations with Paraguay.
In addition to participating in the celebrations of the inauguration of the new President and Vice-President, Andris Piebalgs held meetings with Paraguayan authorities and with representatives of civil society to exchange views on Paraguay's challenges and priorities for the next years. Andris Piebalgs also visited two EU-funded development projects in the areas of education and social development, two of the main areas of EU assistance in Paraguay.
