Implementers of EU assistance to Belarus meet to discuss aid effectiveness

Brussels, 07 July 2011 - The European Commission and the European External Action Service organize in Brussels the first meeting of implementers of EU assistance to Belarus.

Speaking in the run-up to the meeting, Commissioner Štefan Füle said: ‘We work closely with our implementers to increase our effectiveness in delivering EU assistance in Belarus. Our common priority is to reach out through civil society to the population at large. For that purpose we are ready to ensure that the population benefits from our expertise and full support in these difficult times.’

The meeting will bring together over 40 Belarusian and non Belarusian organizations currently implementing EU assistance projects in Belarus. The event is part of the EU’s reinforced commitment to increase the effectiveness of its aid in Belarus and the support to Belarusian population in general. This represents the first step in developing a platform specially tailored for implementers, complementing an already existing one that facilitates donor coordination.
