EU to identify priority sectors for cooperation with Ivory Coast

According to recent reports, Andris Piebalgs, the European Commissioner for Development, will visit Ivory Coast this week.  He is to meet with President Alassane Ouattara and the Prime Minister, Jeannot Kouadio-Ahoussou, to relaunch political dialogue; jointly identify priority sectors for cooperation; and discuss key challenges facing the country. It is expected that Mr. Piebalgs will meet with several other members of the government and will inaugurate an EU-funded water and sanitation programme.
Mr. Piebalgs stated before his departure that his visit “confirms that the European Union is and will remain a reliable partner for Ivory Coast as it pursues its long-term development goals.”
Since the end of the post-election crisis in 2011, new resources have been mobilized to help the EU's total aid for the country  reach more than € 600 million, covering the period from 2008 to 2013.
