    African pledges are not being met

    Oxfam has expressed its concerns that Blair is trying to shy away now, from his pledges on Africa, from African News Dimension:

    Oxfam said that though the Blair government should be praised for its leadership efforts in debt relief and aid, it was not following through promises on trade. The British government was allowing the European Union to push a trade deal that harmed poor countries by offering no substantial cuts in agricultural subsidies, while demanding that poor countries open their industrial markets to unfair competition, Oxfam said. The aid agency said this policy could seriously undermine Africa's future economic development.
