Brown Vows To Forge Global Deal With Obama
Gordon Brown has pledged to forge a “global new deal” with Barack Obama when he meets the new US President in Washington this week.
Mr Brown will be the first European leader to meet Mr Obama since he came to office.
The PM writes in The Sunday Times: “[…] President Obama and I will discuss this week a global new deal, whose impact can stretch from the villages of Africa to reforming the financial institutions of London and New York – and giving security to the hard-working families in every country.”
It would require all continents to make cash injections to boost economies, all countries to adopt green policies, universal banking reforms and changes to international bodies, he suggested.
