on your appointment as International Development Select Committee Chairman. You have big shoes to fill–former chairman and my favourite Liberal Democrat Malcolm Bruce (Vince Cable was one of my favourites left a large legacy.
Here’s Stephen Twigg’s bio and how he fits in with international development:
–Former Director, the Foreign Policy Centre (2005-2010)
–Work for the Aegis Trust / Holocaust Centre genocide prevention charities including in Rwanda (2005 – 2010)
It’s not much but I like this line:
“International development is not just about aid. That is why the Addis Ababa summit is so important, ensuring the sources of finance available to grow businesses in the least developed countries are expanded. Key priorities include infrastructure, public services and trade.”
So well, he’s pretty new to the subject matter but not a total alien.
Welcome, Stephen Twigg.
