Visit of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to El Salvador

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, went to El Salvador to confirm EU's commitment to help the country develop by providing new funding between 2014-2020. The new support will focus on the areas of social services for young people, private sector development and climate change and vulnerability with the objective of improving the livelihoods of those who need it most.
The programme Comunidades Solidarias (PACSES) to which the EU provided 47 million euro, was set up by the Government to increase the provision of public services to the poorest and more vulnerable people. The programme is expected to reach over 13% of the total population (around 750,000 people), being women, children, young people at risk and the elderly the priority groups.
During his visit, Andris Piebalgs met with Mauricio Funes, President of El Salvador, as well as senior ministers, with whom he discussed the future of EU cooperation with El Salvador, and welcomed the results achieved so far.
He visited a hydroelectric plant partly financed by the EU through the Latin American Investment Facility (LAIF). This project will contribute significantly to climate and environmental protection by drastically reducing CO2 emissions, in a country where more than 50% of electricity capacity is based on fossil fuels.
He ended his stay in El Salvador with the visit of the Ciudad Mujer, a project set up for the prevention of violence against women, together with Vanda Pignato, First Lady of El Salvador and and Secretary of Social Inclusion.
