Denmark Reduces Nicaraguan Cooperation

Denmark's aid to the country will be reduced from $34.6 million in 2009 to $26 million in 2010.

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Aid will be modified in favor of 'the private sector and the civil society, including NGO and independent media", at the expense of the State, said Ulla Toernaes, Danish Cooperation Minister.

"Copenhague will 'closely watch' the situation, to 'ensure' that Danish money goes to projects that benefit the population, warned the minister, who said she was ready to 'review and possibly freeze aid' if the need arises", reported Nicaraguan newspaper El Nuevo Diario.
