The European Parliament’s Committee on Development promotes and monitors the development and cooperation policy of the EU, including the promotion of aid, good governance and democratic values.
ECR MEPs support realising measured and tangible improvements to the lives of people in the world's poorest nations. We support the protection of democracy, rule of law, justice, equality and respect for human rights.
The ECR group will continue to press for trade deals that grant developing nations access to EU markets, and helping countries create the conditions in which innovation and enterprise can flourish. We will fight against restrictive trade barriers and stifling red tape. ECR MEPs will address economic reform, tax avoidance and transparency in developing countries to lift the poorest out of poverty.
- Realising measured and tangible improvements to the lives of millions of people living in the most vulnerable areas of the world;
- Placing concrete results, individual property rights and the fight against capital flight and corruption at the heart of the EU development agenda;
- Ensuring that EU aid is delivered in an effective and transparent manner so that European taxpayer money reaches those who need it most.
