Policies of Commonwealth Countries Providing Assistance

Commonwealth donor countries continued in 1974 to provide the larger share of their development assistance on a bilateral basis. The share of bilateral flows in total net official development assistance disbursements in 1974 for the four countries was 74.8 per cent, almost the same as in 1973 when the figure was 75.0 per cent. However, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have announced their intention to increase the share of their ODA disbursed through multilateral channels, Canada to 35 per cent and New Zealand to 30 per cent.
