Government to discuss new concept for Czech foreign developmental aid
The government is to review a new concept for Czech foreign developmental aid on Monday. Under the new plan, foreign aid would be directed to five primary countries: Afghanistan, Bosnia Herzegovina, Ethiopia, Moldavia and Mongolia. Aid is currently provided to eight countries under the concept passed in 2005. The government also aims to redefine the five priorities upon which governmental aid to developing countries should be based, namely ecology, social development, health services, economic development and support for democracy and human rights. The concept also plans more wide-ranging activities in Cambodia, Georgia, Kosovo, Palestine and Serbia.
