Visit of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to Mauritania, Senegal and the Cape Verde

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, embarked on a high-level visit to Mauritania, Senegal and the Cape Verde, during which he underlined the EU’s ongoing commitment to supporting the region and confirmed future funding for the three countries.
The visit was Andris Piebalgs' first ever to Senegal and Cape Verde, and first high level visit since 2008 to Mauritania. He met with Heads of states and governments, ministers and representatives of civil society of the three countries, and discuss future priorities and ongoing areas of cooperation, notably to implement EU's development blueprint known as the "Agenda for Change", as well as regional issues of common interest and the post-2015 agenda (when the current Millennium Development Goals are due to expire).
Besides, this high level visit was a key opportunity for Andris Piebalgs to meet African leaders ahead of the 4th Africa-EU Summit, which will take place in Brussels on 2-3 April 2014. Mauritania has the presidency of the AU in 2014 and will co-preside over the events of the EU-Africa Summit. Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, President of Mauritania, was also one of the ten members of the High Level Committee on the post 2015 process.
In October 2013, Andris Piebalgs had announced €6.4 billion for 16 countries in the region of West Africa1 (subject to confirmation by EU Member States) between 2014-2020, which is expected to support investments that generate growth and job creation for the 300 million citizens of West Africa.
