International Development Committee
Report and Government response published
The Department for International Development’s Economic Development Strategy fails to focus sufficiently on reducing poverty to help the poorest and most marginalised, with the risk that an economic boost for UK trade could lead to developing countries becoming the ‘losers’.
Evidence given by Graham Wrigley, Chairman, and Nick O’Donohoe, Chief Executive Officer, CDC Group PLC; Rt Hon Lord Bates, Minister of State for International Development, Rachel Turner, Director of Economic Development, and Melinda Bohannon, Head of Growth and Resilience Department, Department for International Development (at 10.30am).
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
