Commissioner Piebalgs to visit Ghana

EU Development Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, has begun a two-day visit to Ghana. He will meet with the Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, and acknowledge the smooth political transition after the passing of the late President Atta Mills.  During his visit he will announce EU additional support to Ghana's efforts in tackling maternal health and further improve the role of local authorities, notably to accelerate the achievement of MDGs.
Commissioner Piebalgs will also take part in a High Level Forum "Towards Sustainable Energy for All in West-Africa". This event is expected to result in the adoption of a regional renewable energy policy and an energy efficiency policy, and is one of the first steps towards the implementation of the UN initiative to promote sustainable energy for all by 2050. During the forum, a new Call for proposals of the ACP-EU Energy Facility for €75 million will be announced.
Prior to his departure, Commissioner Piebalgs said: "Ghana is a democratic and economic role model in the region. I am looking forward to discussing how we can deepen our political dialogue and ensure the country's sustainable and solid development. We will be a steadfast partner in this endeavour. I'm happy to sign these funding agreements, which will help Ghana to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and consolidate governance."
