Australia has become a member of the group of donor countries which constitute the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The Development Assistance Committee is the recognised forum for discussion of aid policies and practices among the major donors of aid. Today Australia can count itself among the major donors of aid to other countries. The Committee includes a number of European countries, the United States, Canada and Japan. We have felt that we should, if possible, put ourselves in a position to benefit from regular discussion with the other major donors and to contribute our own not inconsiderable experience and our views to the common pool.
