Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva met Ambassador William Lacy Swing, Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The Commission funds many IOM humanitarian programmes and activities throughout the world. Commissioner Georgieva and Ambassador Swing praised the quality of the relationship between their two organisations and signalled their wish to continue policy dialogue on key humanitarian challenges, notably the encroachment on the "humanitarian space". They also discussed the situation in Haiti focussing on shelter and relocation sites for displaced people, a domain in which the Commission and IOM are close partners.
