Liberals: Halve Help to Third World

Arend Jan Boekestijn, Liberal Parliamentarian of the VVD Party claims that, if the Minister of Development Cooperation were more efficient, the country could save a billion Euro by reducing aid to the Third World. The percentage of the national income spent on development cooperation could thus be reduced from the present 0.8% to 0.4%. Boekestijn said that he wants to eliminate the aid dependence of Third World countries and the support to corrupt governments.
