Distribution of Assistance to Commonwealth Recipient Countries

The Commonwealth developing countries receive development assistance from a variety of sources, bilateral and multilateral. From incomplete information, it appears that in 1975 they received bilateral assistance of $2.8 billion from the DAC countries and concessional funds amounting to $1.1 billion from multilateral agencies, compared with $1.9 billion and $0.9 billion respectively in 1974. Without comparable data on the geographical distribution of aid received in 1975 from all sources, including non-Commonwealth countries, it is not possible to indicate the proportion of aid received by the Commonwealth developing countries and territories that came from Commonwealth sources, but it is believed to have remained significant for almost all and substantial for a number of them.
