This paper provides a broad quantitative picture of recent trends in the flow of financial resources to developing countries. The period covered is the last decade. Most of the data presented are derived from the statistical reporting systems of the OECD and the statistical concepts and country categories used are also those of the OECD. The paper discusses trends in: overall resource flows (Section II); major types of resource flows (Section III); resource flows to different groups of developing countries (Section IV); financial terms of resource flows (Section V); geographic origin of resource flows (Section VI); government policies for resource flows (Section VII).
