New EU projects on health, education and other basic services for the Ethiopian people

BRUSSELS, Kingdom of Belgium, November 25, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ A total of eight new agreements of an overall amount of almost €240 million have been announced during a visit by the European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, to Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). The financial assistance is for projects that will, among other things, help to ensure basic services such as primary schools, health care and water supply, and to support female entrepreneurs. Through one of the projects, for instance, EU funds will contribute to drastically reducing the number of mothers who die around the time of giving birth. Another project will help Ethiopians better prepare for the recurring droughts that hit the country, helping them to withstand the next crisis. Commissioner Andris Piebalgs commented: “This support will boost Ethiopia’s efforts to increase economic growth and reduce poverty. Our cooperation has already had good results and changed many people’s lives for the better. Together we will build on this, continuing to reduce poverty and foster sustainable growth.”
