HL Deb 14 December 1993 vol 550 c108WA
Lord Brougham and Vaux

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Commonwealth Development Corporation (CDC) has been authorised to operate in additional countries.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

Following a request from the corporation, approval has been given for the CDC to operate in Guatemala. In pursuing investment opportunities we expect CDC to give priority to promoting private sector development.
