Call to Norwegian and Ecuadorian governments for a task force on illegitimate debt
The Annual Eurodad Conference meeting in Olso had the privilege to welcome Minister Ricardo Patiño of Ecuador and a senior representative of the Norwegian Minister Erik Solheim.
As participants to this conference, we congratulate both governments for their active involvement in the issue of illegitimate debt. The Ecuadorian government has created a debt audit commission. The Norwegian government cancelled shipping export debts and recognised lender co-responsibility, and also commissioned official studies on odious debt. We also note the Soria Moria declaration call for the definition and then cancellation of illegitimate debt.
