Today, Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides delivers a speech at the 16th Batumi International Conference in Georgia. In the margins of celebrations of the 10th Anniversary of strong Eastern Partnership, Commissioner Stylianides will underline the central part that stronger civil protection and disaster risk management plays in EU's partnership with its Eastern neighbours. When responding to any crisis and helping people in need, working together is essential and no country must be left alone. The EU has recently taken concrete operational steps to strengthen its EU Civil Protection Mechanism by establishing rescEU. During his visit to Georgia, Commissioner Stylianides will hold bilateral meetings with the Prime Minister of Georgia, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and with the Head of the Emergency Service.
