Minister Toivakka: Finland concentrates help on Syria

Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Lenita Toivakka says that Finland focuses its development aid on Syria, its neighbours and Africa in the next few years, while Finland withdraws from Zambia and Vietnam. Finland’s aid this year, EUR 25 million, in Syria is targeted at UN organisations maintaining refugee camps. According to Ms Toivakka, in Africa Finland supports stable countries that receive refugees. She laments the cuts made in development aid but says they are necessary in the current economic situation.
