Prime Minister Mia Mottley has called for a new “global leadership initiative” that would change how some decisions are made for more vulnerable countries seeking financial and other assistance in a post-COVID-19 era.

Promoting the decades-old Commonwealth vulnerability index for developing countries as an example that needed to be “revisited”, Mottley today told CNN that “you can’t determine whether we need access to funding”.

Suggesting that the new global leadership initiative would include all world leaders including Pope Francis, the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Mottley said the time had long past for a review of how the debt of vulnerable countries were responded to and restructured.

She told CNN: “If there is one thing I would like to see coming out of this is a global leadership initiative.

“Seventy-five years ago the United Nations was formed, we used the opportunity of post-World War II to create a number of vital institutions to be able to bring countries together to protect the most vulnerable and the weakest among us, we have also used it to create the Bretton Woods institutions [the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund] we are relying on.

“But we need to repurpose these organizations and in having a global leadership initiative, make sure that we are really reacting to what is real.”
