Global Compact on Refugees - 3rd Formal consultations on DRAFT 1
Geneva, 10-11 April 2018
EU Statement

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the Delegation of Montenegro, led by Mr Goran Scepanović (Director General for Multilateral and Regional Trade Cooperation, Ministry of Economy of Montenegro). I would also like to thank the WTO Secretariat and Government of Montenegro for their reports and the Discussant, H.E. Mr Peter Matt (Liechtenstein) for his opening remarks.

Let me also spare a few words to congratulate the Montenegro WTO team here in Geneva – and I call it a team while being perfectly aware that it is a one woman team – Ambassador Maric. But her pro-activity, her positive spirit and her presence in our daily work here in the WTO are bigger and better than those of many teams I met. Thanks a lot, Zorica.

The head of Cooperation Section, Hermann Spitz, and the Deputy Prime Minister, Milutin Simovic, opened a home for the elderly in the northern town of Pljevlja. The modern facility which cost nearly €3 million will provide permanent housing to 68 elderly refugees.

El CESE contribuye a reforzar la legitimidad democrática y la eficacia de la Unión Europea al permitir que las organizaciones de la sociedad civil de los Estados miembros expresen sus puntos de vista a nivel europeo.

The European Union and its Member States continue to be the world's leading provider of Official Development Assistance (ODA) with an overall amount of €75.7 billion in 2017, confirm the newly released figures by the OECD-DAC.

Today Ambassador Jernej Videtič, Head of Delegation of the European Union to Guyana and Ms. Omattie Madray, Managing Director of ChildLink signed a grant contract to implement a project titled "Recovery, Safeguarding and Reintegration". The objective of the project is the adoption of international guidelines and policy for children’s reintegration in line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child [UNCRC] for 749 children living in institutions and 2500 children at risk of institutional care in Guyana.

The European Union and its Member States continue to be the world's leading provider of Official Development Assistance (ODA) with an overall amount of €75.7 billion in 2017, confirm the newly released figures by the OECD-DAC.

This amount represents 0.50% of EU Gross National Income (GNI). This is significantly above the 0.21% average of the non-EU members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC), despite a small decrease compared to the previous year.
