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

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, went to Niamey, as part of a high-level joint visit with five leaders from amongst the multilateral institutions and the organisations most active in the field of security and development in the Sahel: Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairwoman of the African Union Commission (AUC), and Donald Kaberuka, President of the African Development Bank Group (AfDB).
Andris Piebalgs thus carried on with his tour, after a first stop in Mali.
In Niamey, he announced that 542 million euro will be granted by the EU to the country over the next seven years (subject to final approval by the Council and the EP) in order to reinforces its support for development and security in Niger. Food security, the social sectors, road infrastructure and domestic security and stability will be the four sectors on which EU development aid to Niger will focus for the period 2014-2020.
During this visit, Andris Piebalgs signed four financing agreements and an addendum to an existing project totalling 181 million euro. The agreements concern financing for the following projects: the Zinder-Magaria-Nigerian border road; the rehabilitation of roads and tracks in the Agadez, Tahoua and Tillabéry regions; the Northern Niger Local Development Project; the budgetary support to increase health, education and vocational training indicators; the Support Programme for Justice and the Rule of Law (PAJED-2).
