The influence of UK PM Liz Truss on International Development

Posted on 06 September 2022

Liz Truss has been confirmed as the new leader of the Tory Party and the new UK PM. As British Foreign Secretary, her political journey has been a ‘tangled’ one, but she is expected to take a hard-line on foreign policy. Most recently she has been under fire over UK’s 5p-a-head aid funding for the Pakistan flood response.
Recently, there has been commentary within our sector about what her leadership is likely to mean for development globally. Devex asks “What could a Liz Truss premiership mean for development?”, while Global Citizen asks “What must the next UK Prime Minister Liz Truss focus on?”
