B. PRINCIPLES AND GOALS

This section outlines the necessary framework for action to promote "social progress, justice and the betterment of the human condition." It recognizes the importance of: sound broadly-based economic policies; the family as the basic unit of society; the importance of transparent and accountable governance; and the importance of respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms. Brackets remain around references to: promoting "more" equitable distribution; the right to self-determination of people under colonial or foreign occupation; and narrowing the gap between developed "and other countries in the world, developing countries, and countries with economies in transition."
