International Development – Paris Trip

Published by Lynne Featherstone on Wednesday, January 9th, 2013 at 17:18 pm

Yesterday and today I have been in Paris discussing issues on development and violence against women and girls – in my capacity as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for International Development and UK ministerial champion for tackling violence against women and girls overseas.

I  met with counterparts in the French Government and civil society colleagues to discuss international development priorities, the British Presidency of the G8 and how the UK and France can continue to work closely on tackling poverty in 2013.

Watch an interview, filmed during the trip, here:
