6 © DIE, Policy research: Cooperation with Anchor Countries Point of departure: Some emerging countries … grow fast, reduce poverty fast (even challenge economic sectors in the North) have access to global financial markets, good ratings, high foreign exchange reserves, much less interest in loans from development banks => less need for FC Have excellent national experts => less need for TC Start engaging as donors in other developing countries. ODA questioned by constituency in OECD and in emerging countries. Demand for equal partnership. Consequences for foreign and development policy? Phase out?

7 © DIE, Policy research: Cooperation with Anchor Countries German notion of development policy as Global Structural Policy (in addition to poverty reduction): development of global institutions and cooperative international regulations to deal with global problems/ global public goods => China, India and others are important players: Anchor Countries: 15 important players in GSP (unlike MICs, NICs) = 2/3 worlds poor; CO2 Reduction. WTO, … Largest (or two largest) economies of their respective region. In most cases congruent with regional political powers, members of G20 Assumption: we need to strengthen ties, build normal relationships, not mainly based on DC

8 © DIE, Policy research: Cooperation with Anchor Countries Six country case studies: China, India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Nigeria Principles: aid effectiveness + global public goods + partnerships + subsidiarity Strengthening partnerships. Twinning arrangements; institutional exchange programmes, ongoing dialogue, => the issue of coherence. Triangular development cooperation? How to link policy dialogue and development programmes?
