Meeting Greece’s Minister of Development and Competitiveness Mr. Kostas Skrekas today, OECD Secretary General Angel Gurría said the Greek government’s reform programme was already showing positive results.
The Peer Review recommendations will help Greece build a sound and modern development co-operation system while also improving the quality and impact of its scaled back aid programme under the current national context.
Greek official development assistance was USD 508 million, amounting to 0.17% of its national income, in 2010. By volume, this represents a 28% fall over the past 2 years, from USD 703 million in 2008 and USD 607 million in 2009.
