Select Committee on European Union Forty-Ninth Report


AID: ASSISTING DEVELOPING COUNTRIES TO BENEFIT FROM TRADE (12301/02)

Letter from the Chairman to The Rt Hon Clare Short MP, Secretary of State, Department for International Development

  Thank you for the Explanatory Memorandum dated 7 October 2002 which Sub-Committee C considered at its meeting on 5 November. The Committee agreed to clear this item and ask that you take note of their comments.

  The Sub-Committee welcome the development of greater coherence between different EU policies with an external dimension (Communication paragraph 3.2).

  The Sub-Committee would like to encourage the Government to advance the achievement of its goal to take action in order to fulfil global commitments to assist developing countries to benefit from trade and investment at the GAERC meeting later this month.

7 November 2002
