Commissioners Piebalgs and Barnier advocate green growth in Africa

In the context of the joint EU-Africa Strategic partnership, Andris Piebalgs, European Commissioner for Development, and Michel Barnier Commissioner for Internal Market and Services, will attend the annual joint meeting of the Ministers of Finance and Economy of the African Union and of the UN Economic Commission for Africa on 28th and 29th March in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). The core topic of the meeting will be about "Governing Development in Africa", including discussions on the role of the State, long term prospects for sustainable development through economic integration and green growth. The Commissioners will confirm EU readiness to support Africa's endeavours towards good governance of the economy at national and regional level, a fairly redistributed and environmentally-friendly growth, and a common agenda in the global economic governance. Commissioners will also meet with Jean Ping, President of the African Union, to discuss notably recent developments in North Africa and in Ivory Coast, as well as to prepare the future of EU-African relations. They will also meet with African Union Commissioner Ramtane Lamamra to discuss peace and security issues, notably in Somalia and Ivory Coast.
