Our delegation was headed by the United Kingdom's permanent representative to the United Nations and included officials from the diplomatic and aid wings of the FCO. The meeting reported progress in many international fora in tackling the problems of the least developed countries, for example through debt relief initiatives. No new pledges of financial support were made by any donor.
