Danish Presidency at ACP-EU JPA makes a difference

As we reported last week, Horsens saw the 23rd ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly. The meeting was held jointly by the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Christian Friis Bach, on behalf of the EU Council of Ministers, who responded to questions from the assembly.  
"It is amazing to experience the dedication that characterises this Assembly. And it is exciting to be part of the democratic dialogue within the ACP-EU partnership – a dialogue that gives parliamentarians the possibility to examine the relevant EU institutions. The parliamentarians have an important role in reminding us of our promises for instance on the level of development assistance", he said.
The enthusiasm was apparent from both sides. Cornelius Mwalwanda, a parliamentarian from Malawi, stated that the possibility of putting questions to the EU Council presidency was one of the most important aspects:  “It offers us an insight into what the EU governments are thinking on issues such as development cooperation, climate and other global issues. In this context, I was glad to hear the Danish minister tell us about the adoption in the Danish Parliament on a new law on development cooperation.”
