Mogadishu, May 9 - All around the world, on 9th of May, the EU family celebrates Europe Day in commemoration of the Schuman Declaration. The Declaration, issued now 67 years ago in the aftermath of the Second World War that ravaged much of the continent, was the inspiration for today's European Union.
Forty years ago the EU made a commitment to Malawi to help in reducing poverty and support sustainable development. Since that time we have seen Malawi changing. It has established a multiparty democracy and sustained peace both internally and with its neighbours. It has made progress in a number of areas of human development. The EU has been a partner on your way to progress.
