Commissioner Piebalgs in Djibouti

On 5 July, Andris Piebalgs, European Commissioner for Development will arrive in Djibouti for a visit during which he will meet with President Ismail Omar Guelleh, Prime Minister Dileita Mohamed Dileita and several other high-level representatives of the Djibouti government. During his encounters with government officials the Commissioner will discuss issues of governance and of reinforced cooperation between the EU and Djibouti, particularly in the area of energy, water and sanitation. Exchanges will also cover more generally topics of poverty alleviation and how the Millennium Development Goals can be achieved in Djibouti. Prior to his departure Commissioner Piebalgs said: "Djibouti is an important player in the Horn of Africa, which has clearly demonstrated its commitment to peace and stability in the region. The Commission wants to support its people in addressing the main challenges of the coming years, such as access to affordable and green energy and water supply. In the course of 2011, we plan to sign financing agreements worth €22 million." In addition to his meetings with government representatives, the Commissioner will hold exchanges with the Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), which is a regional organisation in the Horn of Africa. He will also carry out visits to a number of EU projects in Djibouti.
