Josep Borrell mentioned: "I am not going to mislead anyone, this is not fresh money. We do not have fresh money, unhappily. We have to restructure and to reorient our resources and our programmes in order to give priority to the fight against the pandemic and where it is most needed. It will focus on strengthening health systems and responding to the initial socio-economic crisis”. To limit the negative impact on the economy, the EU, working closely with international financial institutions (IFIs) and financing institutions from the EU Member States, created a new €120 million support program to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) easily access credit and boost their businesses after the crisis. The EU added over €200 million to existing credit lines and grants to SMEs in local currency through the EU4Business Initiative. The EU made €500 million available for the EU Neighbourhood through its major de-risking instrument, the European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD), to rapidly provide liquidity across the region. For each individual state, the EU allocated the following budget amounts: Armenia: €92 million; Azerbaijan: €31 million; Belarus: €60 million; Georgia: €183 million; Moldova: €87 million; Ukraine: €190 million. Moreover, the EU, by readopting ongoing programs and the Public Finance Policy Reform budget support program, provided immediate support to the Armenian Government. Furthermore, a twinning program between Armenia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations and the Swedish and Lithuanian civilian protection agencies has already been approved and, after the situation improves, will continue to enhance civil protection and disaster risk management. Twinning is one of the EU’s instruments for ensuring institutional cooperation between public administration bodies of EU member states and those of beneficiary or partner countries. The EU worked hand in glove with other international organizations to mitigate the situation in Armenia. These programs are readjusting as the situation develops. A joint EU-UN three-year project called “Future Today: Empowering Women, Youth and Children for Deepening Democracy in Armenia” has a €3.3 million overall budget, €600,000 of which was reallocated toward the COVID-19 response. It includes various activities such as understanding the needs of vulnerable families in rural areas and providing them with psycho-social support, ensuring a safe re-opening of rural kindergartens, creating an online sales platform for small-scale souvenir and handicraft producers, and support to finalising the " External link

Faustin Archange Touadera déclaré: «L’engagement pris aujourd’hui pour un montant de 2.06 milliards d’euros démontre que nous continuons à soutenir la RCA. Au cours des cinq derniers mois, nous avons travaillé en étroite collaboration pour définir les besoins de la RCA et pour aider le gouvernement à élaborer son plan d’action national pour le relèvement et la consolidation de la paix. Je suis convaincu que ce plan permettra à la République centrafricaine de passer de la gestion de crise à une approche de développement durable sur le long terme en faveur du peuple centrafricain. Aucun retour en arrière n’est possible dans un pays qui a déjà enduré autant de souffrance et de tourments.» External link
