Participation of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, in the Regional Programming Seminar for West Africa

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, participated in the Regional Programming Seminar for West Africa.
He announced new financial support for West Africa for the period 2014-2020, during a round of discussions with Ministers and other authorities of the countries in the region on the priorities to be funded during the next 7 years. This support will amount to some €6.4 billion (subject to confirmation by the EP and Council) and is expected to support investments that generate growth and job creation for the 300 million citizens of West Africa.
For these reasons, the new funds will pave the way for new priorities being discussed with each of the countries present in the seminar. It will also take into account the new forms of implementation as set out in the Agenda for Change, the EU's blueprint to make development aid more efficient and more result-targeted, particularly through blending of funds (mixing grants and loans).
