Data readies for UK G8 and EU tenures

Data, the US-based African development charity founded by Bono, is to boost its profile in the UK ahead of the G8 summit in 2005.

It has hired Oliver Buston, an ex-Oxfam staffer, as director of government and NGO relations in Europe, to help increase its ties with development agencies and establish a set of common goals ahead of Britain's twin presidencies of the EU and the G8 industrialised nations next year.

Data was one of 30 charities that sent a letter to Tony Blair urging him to set more ambitious goals for his presidency of the G8.
