The Council of the European Union (EU) discussed and adopted the conclusions of its Foreign Affairs Council on coordination of international aid efforts in the context of the post-2015 development agenda, highlighting the need to approach the issues in a “truly transformative” manner and to promote policy coherence. The EU Council, a ministerial grouping, met in Brussels, Belgium, on 16 December 2014. They committed to accelerating progress toward the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and to ensuring that the post-2015 agenda provides a comprehensive follow-up to the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) and addresses the structural causes of poverty, inequality, climate change, and environmental degradation.

The German Ambassador to Ghana, Mr John Rudiger, has stressed the resolve of Germany and the European Union (EU) to offer Ghana the needed assistance and tools for it to come out of the current economic challenges. “We know Ghana is currently going through some challenges, we’ve seen ups and downs. But the EU, including Germany, will not let Ghana go down,” Mr Rudiger said last Friday at the Ghanaian-German Economic Association (GGEA) annual member dinner in Accra. The GGEA is a business association of German and European companies which operate in the country and other West African business entities with German and European links. The secretariat provides business advisory services to members on how to do businesses in Europe and West Africa and also organises seminars on burning economic, trade and industry issues and regulatory provisions in order to contribute to a healthy discourse to cause a positive change in the business environment.
