Rwanda: Europe Pledges Further Support

The partnership between the European Union and Rwanda is positive and will continue to grow, the European Union Development and Cooperation (DEVCO) Director for Sub-Saharan Africa, Francesca Mosca, said yesterday. The EU official praised Rwanda for their effective aid utilisation, saying the EU support was delivering results on the ground. 47 million Euros have been disbursed to Rwanda's budget as the indicators had been achieved.
Mosca's remarks followed the media reports attributed to Michael Mann, spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, that the EU was suspending new aid to Rwanda, following controversial allegations that the country was backing rebels in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Kigali has denied links with the M23 rebels.
Budget support has been provided to Rwanda by the EU since 1999 and general budget support has been framed in a Millennium Development Goals (MDG) contract. The MDG contract is a long-term, more predictable form of general budget support that the EU has launched in a number of countries at the start of the 10th EDF programme.
Rwanda's Finance and Economic Planning Minister, John Rwangombwa stated that the budget support Rwanda is supposed to get from the EU has already been disbursed, adding that additional budget support will go directly to development of rural roads, energy and agriculture.
