MEPs on Wednesday (26 October) approved a €500 million increase to EU spending to cover the costs of the refugee and migration crisis without cutting development aid. Europe’s response to the refugee crisis requires significant funds and the European Parliament has decided to make sure they will be available for 2017. In a resolution adopted on Wednesday (26 October), the European Parliament demanded more funds to assist third countries to mitigate the migration crisis. “The European budget must correspond to [the EU’s] political commitments and strategic objectives,” MEPs insisted.

The UK coalition Government of 2010-2015 launched the Africa Free Trade Initiative (AFTi) in 2011 to help African countries to integrate into the world trade system, focusing on political, financial and technical support to boost trade between African countries, and trade of African countries with the world. To mark the fifth anniversary of AFTi the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Trade out of Poverty (APPG-TOP) appointed an Inquiry Committee of distinguished experts to review the achievements of AFTi so far, advise on whether there is a case for a successor-initiative – an“AFTi II” – and if so, what its targets should be and how it would work.
