Denmark still among top aid countries

Along with Norway, Sweden, Luxembourg and the UK, Denmark is part of an exclusive group of OECD countries that live up to the UN’s goal of giving at least 0.7 percent of their GNI away in aid. According to the latest OECD figures for 2017, Denmark earmarked 0.72 percent of its GNI to development. “We should be proud that we have once again lived up to the UN target in terms of aid,” said the development minister, Ulla Tørnæs. “Through our development work, we create better living conditions, growth and jobs in some of the world’s poorest countries and thereby help prevent migration. When we help people, such as in the Middle East and Africa, improve their lives at home, we also help ourselves.” - CPH Post -
