EU: broad support for development aid

85% of EU citizens believe that Europe should continue helping developing countries despite the economic crisis. The findings were announced on November 16 by European Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs at the European Development Days.
The new Eurobarometer survey on development shows that 61% of Europeans are in favour of increasing aid to help people out of poverty, and believe that aid should focus on fragile countries which have suffered conflict or natural crises. However, a majority of 55% think that rapidly growing emerging countries should no longer receive aid.
The Eurobarometer was carried out between 2 June and 17 June, 2012. Some 26,622 Europeans aged 15 or over were interviewed face-to-face in their homes.
