Bad Aid (yet another wonderful initiative from you know who…)

Filed under: Aid — terence @ 6:15 pm

The vandalism of the New Zealand aid programme continues. This time (hat tip – my wife) it takes the form of aid money being used to pay for the visits to New Zealand by businessmen from parts of SE Asia for ‘training’. Training? Hardly, these are visits intended to build links between NZ businesses and Asian markets. And it is not aid. I cover the issue in more detail (with links included) at the ANU Development Policy blog.
