Finland Support and aid Stats

Definitions

  • Government support for fishing > Government financial transfers to fishing: The time series, “Government financial transfers (GFT)” provides an indicator of the financial support received by the fisheries sector. GFT consists of direct revenue enhancing transfers (direct payments), transfers that reduce the operating costs, and the costs of general services provided to the fishing industry. These general services consist mainly of fishery protection services and fisheries management but also include the costs of local area weather forecasting and the costs of navigation and satellite surveillance systems designed to assist fishing fleets.
  • Government support for fishing > Government financial transfers to fishing per 1000: The time series, “Government financial transfers (GFT)” provides an indicator of the financial support received by the fisheries sector. GFT consists of direct revenue enhancing transfers (direct payments), transfers that reduce the operating costs, and the costs of general services provided to the fishing industry. These general services consist mainly of fishery protection services and fisheries management but also include the costs of local area weather forecasting and the costs of navigation and satellite surveillance systems designed to assist fishing fleets. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
  • Government support for fishing > Government financial transfers to fishing, % of GDP: The time series, “Government financial transfers (GFT)” provides an indicator of the financial support received by the fisheries sector. GFT consists of direct revenue enhancing transfers (direct payments), transfers that reduce the operating costs, and the costs of general services provided to the fishing industry. These general services consist mainly of fishery protection services and fisheries management but also include the costs of local area weather forecasting and the costs of navigation and satellite surveillance systems designed to assist fishing fleets. Figures expressed as a proportion of GDP for the same year
  • Official development assistance > Net official development assistance: Official development assistance is defined as government aid to developing countries designed to promote the economic development and welfare of recipient countries. Loans and credits for military purposes are excluded. The aid may be provided bilaterally, from donor to recipient, or it may be channeled through a multilateral development agency such as the United Nations or the World Bank.

    Aid includes grants, "soft” loans, and the provision of technical assistance. Soft loans are those where the grant element is at least 25%. ODA is usually measured on a net basis, i.e. after subtracting loan repayments from the gross aid flows. Data on the geographical distribution of aid are presented on a gross basis to show the level of new aid provided during the period.

    The OECD maintains a list of developing countries and territories, and only aid to these countries counts as ODA. The list is periodically updated and currently contains over 150 countries or territories which had per capita incomes of less than USD 10 066 in 2004 (by comparison, per capita income in OECD countries averaged over USD 35 000 in that year). Note that of the 30 member countries of the OECD, only the 22 shown in the table are members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC), along with the European Commission.
