EU Commissioner Piebalgs at G8 Development in Halifax

The European Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs will represent the European Commission at the G8 Development Ministerial meeting in Halifax from 26 to 28 April 2010. He will promote the EU action plan proposed by the European Commission in support of the Millennium Development Goals ahead of the UN MDG Summit in September. This G8 Development meeting takes place before the G8 of June when Heads of States will discuss the way ahead to foster achievement of Millenium Development Goals. These high level political meetings pave the way towards the UN Meeting on MDGs in September 2010.
European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, said: "I’m happy to attend the G8 development meeting for the first time, in such a crucial year for development. I will call EU partners to commit to ambitious targets: we will all need to join forces to fighting poverty in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Ahead of the UN MDG Summit in September, we have to confirm the global political will in support of the most disadvantaged. "
Ahead of the G8 Head of States meeting in Muskoka (Canada) on June 25-26, the G8 Development Ministerial is taking place in Halifax from the 26th to the 28th of April. Development ministers will notably held debates on:
• Millennium Development Goals
