New EU Development Commissioner: Neven Mimica

Croatian Commissioner-designate Neven Mimica would replace Andris Piebalgs from 1 November 2014. The European Commission for 2014-2019 is set to have Neven Mimica as Commissioner for 'International Cooperation and Development', pending approval from the European Parliament. He will be joined by new Commissioners for Humanitarian aid as well as a new Foreign Policy chief.

CONCORD talked to the media saying that the future development Commissioner must make sure development does not become "second best" to foreign policy interests in the new institutional setup.
