Cooperation with European Union attracts little resources says Angola Minister

The National Indicative Programme for 2008/2013 between Angola and the European Union has a level of absorption of resources of 26 percent of the 214 million Euros planned, which is considered as low. This was said Thursday in Luanda by Angolan minister of Planning, Ana Dias Lourenço. The minister was presenting the topic “Relations between Angola and the European Community: Document of strategy for the country and the National Indicative Programme for 2008-2013", as part of the Round Table on the Cotonou Accord and the African, Caribbean and Pacific – European Union Joint Parliamentary Assembly, organised by Angolan Parliament. Ana Dias Lourenço explained that this fact results from the delay in the preparation of projects by Angola and in the process of their approval by the European Union, which requires improved procedures. On the other hand, the minister criticised the EU, saying the organisation needs to be more flexible and less bureaucratic in handling projects submitted to it for approval. She informed that the EU has since 2008 taken the commitment to placing at the disposal of Angola 214 million Euros, over a period of five years, to finance macro-economic, social and human development programmes, including the sector of Agriculture and Rural Development. According to the source, this is in addition to another 13,9 million Euros that might be made available to cover emergency aid situations. The National Indicative Programme is an operative instrument that realises the strategy, defines the resources available for implementation of programmes, within the framework of the cooperation in respect, by identifying focal and non-focal projects.
