56 views

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, made a joint visit to the Central African Republic with Pascal Canfin, French Minister Delegate for Development, and Gerd Müller, German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, on 13 and 14 March 2014. On 13 March 2014, they were welcomed in Bangui by Toussaint Kongo Doudou, Central Minister for Foreign Affairs, African Integration and the French-Speaking Community, and Charles Malinas, French Ambassador in Central African Republic. They had a meeting with officials from the French armed forces in the Central African Republic. And they met André Nzapayeké, Central African Prime Minister, over dinner. During the two-day visit, Andris Piebalgs announced 81 million euro of new EU support to the Central African Republic. The amount represents a significant boost in EU aid to the country and will help restore basic social services and livelihoods, particularly in the areas of education (for example, to help classes restart in schools which have been closed due to the conflict), health (to rehabilitate and re-equip health centres), and food security and nutrition (to ensure agriculture continuity, for example, by providing seeds.).
