NEW YORK (WCBS 880/ CBS 2/AP) - President Barack Obama told a U.N. conference that the United States is changing its approach to development to focus less on spending money and more on really helping countries develop.
That means using diplomacy, trade, investment policies and other resources to help them prosper.
The changed approach is spelled out in the administration’s new global development policy, which Obama announced in a speech Wednesday at the United Nations in New York.
Obama said the administration will demand accountability from the U.S. and the countries it is trying to help. But, he says, make no mistake, the U.S. will remain a world leader in providing assistance.
