Tied Aid

  • Provides financial help to a developing countries
  • Buying goods and services from the donor country helps to create jobs.
  • Aid will not be wasted on weapons or useless projects.
  • Both sides benefit from tied aid.
  • Opportunity to help a friendly/democratic country.
  • Prestige for donor country
  • Recipient country could buy cheaper/better quality goods in another country
  • Helps the donor country more than the recipient
  • Gives the donor country power over the recipient.
