    Europe must avail the opportunities which lie ahead and try to shape the future of development cooperation, Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis has said, as she outlined ways Europe can strengthen its role as a leader in development cooperation in a rapidly changing world.

    Addressing an event in Brussels titled "The Post 2015 Development Architecture", in the framework of the 2012 European Development Days, Marcoullis pointed out that changes are needed. According to an official announcement, Marcoullis said that the EU Foreign Affairs Council discussed earlier this week, among others, the future development architecture.

    "We all agreed that achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and designing a post-2015 development framework should be our foremost priority", she said, adding that "in order to achieve this we need to ask ourselves two questions, namely, how do current global shifts affect the future of international development cooperation and how can the EU strengthen its development apparatus so as to lead these changes."
