Giving human rights credit: EU countries agree to toughen export loan scrutiny

(June 29, 2011) A press release from ECA-Wach, Amnesty International and Eurodad. It welcomes EU permanent representatives' endorsement of the European Parliament’s proposal to make national export credit agencies (ECAs) more accountable for the support they give companies doing business around the world. The three organisations believe this move will increase transparency and human rights compliance and  hope that this will trigger more ambitious reforms in EU capitals, leading to a general reform in global ECA standards.
