  • Framework and Assessment

    This report on the Flow of Intra-Commonwealth Aid for 1969 is the fourth of the series giving a comprehensive statement of official aid flows within the Commonwealth. From the inception of this new series of reports on the flow of official aid, the Secretariat has continued to collect and compile the data on a programme basis thus making available aggregate information for individual programmes, such as the Special Commonwealth African Assistance Plan. This information is not elsewhere available on a Commonwealth basis, the Colombo Plan is the only programme for which an annual report is presented.

  • Summary of Commonwealth Flows of Aid

    Commonwealth countries take part either as suppliers or recipients in many assistance programmes, some of which are intra-Commonwealth while others involve co-operation with non-Commonwealth countries or the UN and its agencies. The purely intra-Commonwealth programmes include the Special Commonwealth African Assistance Plan (SCAAP), the Commonwealth Caribbean Assistance Programme, the various schemes for Commonwealth Education Co-operation, the Colonial Development and Welfare programmes, the Overseas Service Aid and similar schemes, and the Australia South Pacific Aid Programme. The Commonwealth is associated with non-Commonwealth countries in such programmes a s the Colombo Plan, the Indus Basin and Tarbel a Development Funds, the economic parts of the South East Asia Treaty Organisation, and the Indian General Cultural Scholarship Scheme.

  • Countries Supplying Assistance - Policies

    For a number of reasons, Britain is the most important source of assistance among Commonwealth countries. Nevertheless, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand also provide appreciable amounts of help to other countries, both within the Commonwealth and outside the Commonwealth. Although the major supplying countries continue to place most emphasis on bilateral arrangements, they also make substantial contributions to multilateral programmes.

  • The Regional Distribution of Aid

    Nearly half of the total amount of intra-Commonwealth net financial assistance is destined for Asian countries while about one-fifth goes to African countries. The position is reversed for technical assistance expenditure in that more than half is accounted for by African countries while Asia receives less than a sixth. This chapter concentrates on the distribution of aid on a regional basis while Chapter V looks in more detail at the assistance received by individual countries.

  • Countries Receiving Assistance

    The previous chapter dealt with the flow of intra-Commonwealth aid on a regional basis and by programme. This chapter deals briefly with the assistance received by most of the individual Commonwealth countries and gives a short summary of development objectives and policies for each. The statistical table in each country study is based on information provided by the supplying country, supplemented in some instances by data from the receiving country.
