To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, how much Official Development Assistance funding his Department is providing to (a) Nigeria, (b) South Africa, (c) Kenya, (d) Ethiopia, (e) Colombia, (f) Peru, (g) Indonesia and (h) Bangladesh; and (i) for what purpose and (ii) under which programme is that funding being provided.
DIT has no active ODA funded programming in the countries listed. As part of the design of the Investment Promotion Programme (IPP), DIT plans to spend ODA in Nigeria, South Africa and Peru. These countries were selected as they scored highly on development needs and opportunities. To date, no ODA has been provided to these countries as the programme has recently started. Details on country spend from IPP will be published in line with DIT’s transparency commitment.
