Development assistance

The EU has historical partnerships with many regions, both throughout the developing world and in its neighbourhood. Through trade policy, political dialogue, and financial assistance to third countries, EU external action aims to promote the fundamental values of the European Union in the world, and to contribute to efforts to meet the global challenges of the 21st Century.
