The UK is a strong supporter of education, with a commitment to provide £8.5 billion for education by 2015; it is the second largest contributor to the Education for All Fast Track Initiative. At the autumn meetings of the G7 and IMFC, Finance Ministers reaffirmed the importance they place on development issues, including education.
