UK announces G8 priorities

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has confirmed that the focus for next year’s G8 summit will be securing global growth and prosperity through championing open economies, open governments, and open societies.

David Hall-Matthews, Director of Publish What You Fund, said:

“We are pleased that the UK’s Presidency will keep transparency high on the agenda at the G8 summit of leaders, and hope this leads to some substantive, practical change.

“The G8 should lead on transparency in their own practices. An Accountability Report should be produced before the summit, to include a record of progress on aid effectiveness commitments, notably the Busan common standard for aid information.”
