Contribution to Financial Assistance Fund - December 2008

The Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway has made a contribution of 2 million Norwegian Kroner (approximately € 220,000) to the PCA’s Financial Assistance Fund. The grant is earmarked for expenses relating to the Abyei arbitration between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army.

The Financial Assistance Fund was set up in 1994 to help developing countries defray the costs involved in international arbitration or other means of dispute settlement offered by the PCA. Prior contributions to the Fund have been made by Norway, Cyprus, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Lebanon. At the April 2008 meeting of the Administrative Council, the Netherlands announced that it would donate € 700,000 to the PCA Financial Assistance Fund, to be made available over a period of four years, with the first instalment of € 175,000 made in 2008. The Netherlands encouraged other Member States to contribute and in June 2008, Lebanon made a voluntary contribution of US$ 2,000 to the Financial Assistance Fund.
