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.

Yet global development efforts, under the framework of the Millennium Development Goals, have led to measurable progress, and we have seen millions being lifted out of poverty in recent years. At the same time however, we are also see growing inequalities and need to find ways to make economic growth more beneficial for a greater number of people.
