EuropeAid Development priorities and methodologies - How the programmes are designed and how the projects are financed

Why EU uses EU tax payers money to finance development in other countries?

"So we believe that investing in aid because it's an investment, it is not charity, is one of the smartest investment we can do, because we have to help each other so that the whole world basically can grow can be safer can be more environmental safer as well so really all have an interest in that. So that's why we believe that taxpayers money are definitely not badly spend and that the investment are returning back in the EU."
