"For the European Union, and particularly for the European Parliament, helping South Soudan to attain a development which is inclusive and democratic is paramount" stated Mr Rinaldi. The delegation welcomed the allocation by the EU of 200 million Euros to support the implementation of the Government of South Sudan's forthcoming "2011-13 Development Plan", especially for projects related to education, health, agriculture, food security and democratic governance.
