EU Development Ministers’ meeting

Ministers are expected to agree the EU’s common position on finance for development for international talks on how to finance the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDG) agenda. Oxfam is calling for the EU to recognise the crucial role of public resources -like overseas aid and innovative ways of raising money like a financial transaction tax- to help fight against poverty and inequality worldwide. Moreover, Oxfam believes the mobilization of domestic public resources is the most promising and sustainable way for any country to guarantee money for social services like health and education. Ministers will also discuss Policy Coherence for Development.
