Political Aid

To follow up my previous post somewhat:
  • Labor have promised to lift Foreign Aid levels to 0.5% of GDP by 2015. This is an increase from:
  • The Coalition who have already commited to 0.35% of our GDP in Foreign Aid by 2010. The Libs are yet to commit past 2010.
So despite Labor looking the goods on this issue, BOTH parties have thus far failed in our commitment to the UN Millennium Development Goals of 0.7% of GDP in foreign aid by 2015. (Source!)

Interestingly, both The Greens & Family First state in their policies that they would like to see the 0.7% figure reached or exceeded.
