Cabinet to discuss draft bill on official development aid

The Cabinet discussed on August 22 a bill on the Slovak Republic's official development aid that’s aimed at supporting sustainable development in developing countries. According to the draft, development aid activities are financed from public resources and must be used in line with the rules of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

The Slovak Agency for International Development Assistance (SAMRS) is in charge of the development aid, while the Foreign Ministry is the national coordinator. Slovakia provides official development aid in line with EU policy, but has a set of its own goals to alleviate poverty and hunger in developing countries and to strengthen democracy and human rights.
