DFID is proud to be a strong financer of global education. We have made the largest overall contribution to GPE since 2003, and our future investment in GPE will be a crucial part of achieving our new policy objectives. DFID maintains a close working relationship with GPE and currently funds 15% of GPE operations. The UK has been working with GPE through its Executive Board so that it has a compelling case for investment. The UK fully supports a successful replenishment. I am unable to comment on what the UK will contribute at this time, officials are in the process of advising ministers.
