Media Release | Spokesperson Bob Brown

Thursday 12th August 2010, 5:09pm

Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown welcomed the Coalition's announcement of a Minister for

International Development today.

"I announced that the Greens would move for a Minister for Overseas Aid and International Development in

my National Press Club Speech in July," said Senator Brown.

The Greens support an Australian Development Aid contribution of 0.7% of GNI by 2012, in line with the

United Nations goal for developed countries.
