HC Deb 02 November 1993 vol 231 c136W
Mr. Hicks

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list all financial aid projects currently being made by the United Kingdom to Paraguay, and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The United Kingdom's small aid programme to Paraguay involves technical co-operation rather than financial aid. The bulk of the programme is focused on the natural resources sector. It currently comprises the following projectsassistance with a major economic review of the livestock sub-sector; capability strengthening programme with Pro-Paraguay—the organisation responsible for promoting Paraguayan exports and attracting foreign investment; United Kingdom training programme—involving scholarships for some 14 Paraguayans annually; assistance in undertaking a post-census assessment survey.

The ODA is also supporting a number of non-governmental organisation projects in Paraguay through its joint funding scheme.
