Signature ceremony of the joint financing conventions between the EU and the NAOs of the Portuguese Speaking African Countries and Timor Leste

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, met with the high level representatives of the Portuguese Speaking African Countries and Timor Leste (called PALOP-TL group) to discuss the priorities for the PALOP-TL programming for the period 2014-2020.
In this context, Andris Piebalgs signed a number of funding agreements for a total of 23 million euro that will strengthen good governance in the partner countries. This will be achieved through various activities including training, exchange of experiences and good practices at regional level. One project will establish a training institution for financial and economic management in Portuguese language. Another one will improve the skills of audit courts, parliaments and civil society in controlling public finances. Other activities will support the fight against corruption, money laundering and organised crime as well as the improvement of public services.
The signatories of these agreements included: Henrique Banze, Mozambican Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Tombwele Francisco Pedro, Member of the Group Board of Directors of the African Development Bank (AfDB), and Maria de Jesus Veiga Miranda Mascarenhas, Head of the Mission of Cape Verde to the EU.
