This Government is proud to maintain the UK’s commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of GNI on development and will do more to help countries receiving aid to become self-sufficient. The UK will continue to lead on promoting girls’ education around the world, tackling climate change, ending the preventable deaths of mothers, new-born babies and children by 2030, and also lead the way in eradicating Ebola and malaria. This will transform the lives of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable; and we are clear that a world in which free societies and liberal values are able to flourish is firmly in our own interests. The Integrated Security, Defence and Foreign Policy Review will be a wholesale reassessment of our foreign, defence, security and development policy.
