Nicuraguan Investment Conditionality Act

EDM number 1010 in 2017-19, proposed by Chris Williamson on 01/03/2018.
Categorised under the topics of International politics and government, Latin America, North America and International economic relations.

That this House is extremely concerned by US proposals to implement sanctions against Nicaragua through the so-called NICA Act; believes that, if passed, the Act will serve only to destabilise Nicaragua and further impoverish what is already the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere; further believes that the proposed Act will put at risk a whole raft of social programmes put in place since 2007, programmes which are directed at the poorest and most vulnerable and which have already led to a 50 per cent reduction in levels of poverty and maternal mortality; and therefore expresses condemnation of the US proposals and will oppose all steps taken by the US to pass and implement the Act.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
