Australia's foreign aid budget just hit rock bottom

By Simon Thomsen

Abstract

Cuts to Australia’s foreign aid budget introduced by Joe Hockey last year are being maintained in the 2016 Budget, resulting in a further $224 million fall to $3.877 billion in 2016-17. The latest reduction follows the biggest cut on record, with Hockey slashing $1 billion from the aid program 12 months ago. Treasurer Scott Morrison now sets his own record with the aid spend at an all-time low of 0.22% of national income — 22 cents per $100
