Planned update to information note
On 21 April 2021 the Foreign Secretary submitted a Written Ministerial Statement to Parliament which outlined the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s (FCDO) official development assistance (ODA) allocations for 2021-22. In this statement he confirmed that one area of UK ODA engagement with China, the FCDO’s ODA for programme delivery, would be cut to £0.9 million.
Research for the information note was completed before this announcement. We plan to update this note when we obtain further details of the government’s plans for other parts of the UK aid engagement with China.
