Trudeau pledges cash for infrastructure and making vaccines in developing countries

BADUNG, Indonesia — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is announcing funding for developing countries to improve their infrastructure and make COVID-19 vaccines.

At the G20 summit in Indonesia, Trudeau says the private sector needs to help governments abroad build schools and hospitals.

He is pledging $750 million in financing for infrastructure projects in Asia, administered by a Crown corporation.

It’s largest chunk of funding announced so far as the Liberals gradually roll out their Indo-Pacific strategy.

Trudeau is also announcing $80 million for global health systems, with most of the funding helping countries prevent pandemics and respond to them.

The funding will also support projects that help developing countries manufacture COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.
