Estonia has no information about the effect produced by its assistance on the developing countries it helps.
"Despite the fact that Estonia's contribution to the development of the countries in need is equal to that of other European countries, there is no chance to find out what kind of help is really effective", - says political expert Eveline Andrespok.
"According to the European Commission, last year Estonia allocated 14 million euro, which is almost 220 million krones. Unfortunately, there is no opportunity to track down the efficiency of the invested means", - the expert goes on.
"Basically, Estonia offers its experts' experience to the developing countries. I have a small desire to refer to the Estonian experts' contribution to the development of Georgia, Afghanistan and other countries as to conference tourism but there are no grounds for any other characteristic", - Andrespok stated.
