The OECD DAC welcomes Slovakia as its 27th member
Over the last decade, the Slovak Republic has established itself as a provider of development co operation. Slovakia more than tripled its volume of official development assistance (ODA) between 2004 and 2008. In 2012, its ODA reached USD 80 million, or 0.09% of the country’s gross national income (GNI). The Slovak Republic has also developed legislative and strategic frameworks as well as monitoring and evaluation systems for providing effective development co-operation.
At its meeting on 17 September 2013, the DAC invited the Slovak Republic to become a member of the Committee. The Slovak Republic accepted this invitation and, in a letter addressed to the OECD Secretary General, pledged to fulfil obligations of DAC membership.
