The European Commission announced in Jean-Claude Juncker’s ‘State of the Union’ speech a new initiative on Africa – the EU External Investment Plan (EIP), which looks at helping the private sector in Africa and the European Neighbourhood. The plan hopes to help meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals agreed in 2015 and boost the decline since the financial crisis of 2008 of foreign direct investment (FDI) to developing states. In 2012, only 6% (€ 34.6 billion) of total global FDI to developing countries went to what the OECD call ‘fragile states.’ Among those on the fragile states list, the majority of FDI is attracted by resources-rich countries, with 72% concentrated in ten countries in 2012.

The revision of the European Consensus on Development has once again thrown the spotlight on the failure of EU countries to allocate 0.7% of their gross national income (GNI) to international solidarity. EurActiv France reports. European lawmakers have expressed their frustration at member states’ continued failure to reach their development assistance targets. For Luxembourgish MEP Charles Goerens (ALDE group) this undermines the very credibility of the EU’s aid policy.
