Aid and Debt
Share this page
The TUC supports the UN's call for all rich countries to spend at least 0.7 per cent of national income on aid to developing countries. The TUC believes that aid should not be linked to blanket economic conditions – such as economic liberalisation. However, we do believe that aid should be linked to political reform such as decent labour standards, democracy, good governance and the promotion of equality.
The TUC supports the Jubilee Debt Campaign [http://www.jubileedebtcampaign.org.uk] in its demand for all debt to the world's poorest countries to be written off.
The TUC is an active member of the MakePovertyHistory campaign
