News||15 December 1998|update 11|
Leading non-governmental thinkers and advocates met in Ottawa in parallel with the Commonwealth Finance Ministers' meeting to discuss financial crises and the needs of the world's most vulnerable and poorest people. The meeting - coordinated by the Halifax Initiative, a coalition of Canadian organisations "for global economic democracy" - brought together MPs, NGOs, researchers and members of the public.
