Welcome words

Chair of the Committee on Development

Welcome to the website of the Committee on Development (DEVE). I have had the honour of being Chair of the committee since July 2014.

At the same time however, we are also seeing growing inequalities and need to find ways to make economic growth more beneficial for a greater number of people.
