This a MUST READ story from Mail Online. Check it out!
Recently, I have been travelling extensively in many poorer parts of Asia and agree strongly with the Mail Online about David Cameron‘s record on foreign aid. I have been in Nepal which has strong historical ties with the UK and the Gurkhas have a world-famous reputation - Nepal desperately needs infrastructure investment to help it out of poverty. Similarly, I have been in Tibet where Chinese investment has helped raise the standard of living and drastically improve education and learning – so why does Cameron continue to meddle on Tibet?
This leads me to an open question:
In an age of austerity is there still a place for foreign aid and if so, how should it be managed effectively?
