Outcome of re-launched EU-US Development Dialogue

The EU-US dialogue on development was relaunched today (25th April) in Washington. It provides a framework for cooperation between the two largest donors in the world in their efforts to tackle poverty worldwide. This initiative has been a priority for EU development Commissioner Andris Piebalgs and USAID Administrator Dr Rajiv Shah in the first few months since they both took up office. With five years remaining to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, the relaunch is a sign of new political will to work together in the fight against poverty. European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, said: "Today’s commitment of the two biggest donors, the EU and US, to join forces in the fight against poverty is good news for poorest countries. I’m confident that the three roadmaps agreed for joint action on Millennium Development Goals, Food security, and Climate change will ensure concrete progress on the ground."
