EU Commissioner Piebalgs participates in the UN panel on post-2015 development agenda
Commissioner Piebalgs will attend a meeting of the High Level Panel on the Post Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agenda which takes place on 26-27 March in Bali, Indonesia.
This High Level Panel – on which Commissioner Piebalgs has been appointed a member last year - was set up by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in July 2012 to advise on the global development framework beyond 2015, once the MDGs come to an end.
The meeting is co-chaired by Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President of Indonesia, David Cameron, UK Prime Minister and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia. The High level panel will discuss what the future development priorities should be, together with representatives from UN organisations, governments, private sector and civil society.
