Paul Frix exchanges views with the EP Development Committee


On February 10th, 2014, Mr. Paul Frix has presented to the Development Committee of the European Parliament the CDE, its main challenges and possible avenues for the future.

Ms Véronique De Keyser, Socialist MEP, has called upon the CDE on its added value, on the one hand, and the European Commission on proposed alternatives, in terms of support to the ACP private sector, on the other hand.

Mr. Pierre Amilhat, Director at the European Commission Development and Cooperation Directorate-General, has responded by announcing the planned closure of the CDE.

Ms Eva Joly, Chair of the Development Committee of the European Parliament, was chairing the discussions.
