The EU Monday announced that it will support the wider region of the Horn of Africa with a total of 3 billion euro until 2020.
The largest share of this aid will go to Ethiopia, Eritrea, Uganda, Somalia, Djibouti and Kenya and parts will also go to regional organisations.
EU Development Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, commented that "the EU stands ready to further deepen its long-standing partnership with the Horn of Africa, helping to build robust and accountable political structures, enhancing trade and economic cooperation, financing peace keeping activities and providing humanitarian assistance and development cooperation." "Our support will help the people of the Greater Horn on their path to much needed peace, stability, resilience and growth," he added.
