Visit by Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to the Philippines

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, embarked on a two-day visit to the Philippines to further advance bilateral development co-operation between the archipelago and the EU.
On this occasion, he announced new EU funds of eight million euros to contribute to the economic and social recovery of conflict-affected areas in Mindanao.
The visit had been scheduled prior to the Typhoon Haiyan, but it was inevitably changed by the circumstances. Andris Piebalgs conveyed his condolences to the authorities and the people of Philippines and expressed his deepest sympathy and solidarity to the families of the victims and all those affected by Typhoon Haiyan which made land fall in The Philippines at the end of last week and resulted in very extensive loss of lives and destruction.
Andris Piebalgs convened an emergency meeting of EU Ambassadors in Manila in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), to receive a briefing from the EU Humanitarian Office (ECHO) teams to explain the extent of the devastation they have witnessed on the ground in the Visayas and suggest the most effective forms of emergency assistance. This follows EU release of a first tranche of humanitarian assistance of 3 million euro. The EC sent a team to assist the Philippine authorities and stand ready to contribute with further assistance if required.
