According to a leaked internal document of the European Commission (EC), EU member states shall be allowed to import genetically modified (GM) food imports for both human and animal consumption. This model correlates with the recent GM cultivation rules, which is also an à la carte system. Environmentalists are not happy with this outcome, as in their opinion, GM crops will propagate and circulate freely within the EU market regardless of each member states preference. Currently, 48 GM crops are imported, but this figure is expected to increase with the adoption of the new legal framework on GM crops.

On Thursday 16th April, the European Commission’s External Cooperation Infopoint presented The Development of Aid : Historical development of aid practices. In his presentation, Gerard van Bilzen spoke about the origins of DG DEVCO whose roots are in the Treaty of Rome. Development of aid was possible true following a French proposal, supported by Belgium, in order to address the situation in colonies. Despite German and Dutch opposition, an agreement could be reached and thus, the European Fund for Development (the first fund for development) created.
