EU on verge of 'historic opportunity' to help Africa

EU Commissioner for development Andris Piebalgs says the world "stands on the brink of a truly historic opportunity" to improve the lives of people in Africa. Speaking on Tuesday at the Development Policy Forum annual policy summit in Brussels, he said he wanted to "bring lasting growth and prosperity to the whole of Africa".
The official was the keynote speaker at an event organized by Friends of Europe, the Brussels-based leading think tank. Addressing an audience of NGOs and other groups, he said the international community was "well on our way to eradicating desperate poverty in our lifetime" and that "Every citizen on the planet should expect and demand from their governments at the very latest by 2030, with, where necessary, for the poorest countries, the support of the international community."
