Development webchat

2 May 2007

Douglas Alexander; copyright: ReutersDouglas Alexander, Secretary of State for International Development, will take part in a live webchat in Downing Street on Wednesday 7 May at 13:00 BST.

The webchat will take place in the same week as the launch of the Business Call to Action, an initiative aimed at bringing the private sector on board to boost economic development.

Douglas will also take enquiries on the wider development agenda, such as the progress being made in reaching the Millennium Development Goals, especially the drive to achieve universal education and reductions in maternal mortality.

The webchat will be an opportunity to find out what the Government is doing to fight poverty in some of the world’s least developed countries, what difference the UK is making in tackling climate change in Africa and even how ethical consumers can make a difference through their weekly shop.
