The European Commission recommends a greater focus in trade and investment policies in favour of countries most in need. According to this, EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht  has recently stated: "The rise of emerging economies like India, China and Brazil shows that trade-driven development is possible and that open markets can play a major role in generating growth. Yet those trailing behind need help".

The priorities of Denmark's Presidency of the EU Council of Ministers has been presented to European Parliament committees by Danish ministers this week. According to Trade and Investment Minister Pia Olsen Dyhr, the EU's international trade policy, should focus on achieving immediate export and investment gains, rather than on long-term and strategic projects such as the WTO Doha negotiations.

According to Bill Gates "Europe's role will shape global action, what happens to people in need." Gates, who recently met the Parliament´s Development Committee, recognises the European´s commitment to development aid. In spite of the European economic crisis and its effects, he remains hopeful of continued European support: “[...]it is critical that you continue your leadership and we continue working together and caring for each other”.
