After days of round-the-clock negotiation, the 194 member countries of the UN Conference on Trade and Development reached an agreement on debt, tax and trade policies. Stay tuned for more information as the agreement is finalized.
Jubilee USA's executive director Eric LeCompte and board co-chair Aldo Caliari led our delegation to the conference - and worked with our global partners and Vatican leaders to win this agreement.
During the week-long conference, Eric joined the directors of the African Development Bank, the Kenyan Central Bank and European Finance Ministry officials at a roundtable on sovereign debt. He also addressed the summit during general debate.
