Swedish help world's poor most

SWEDEN is the top contributor to helping poor countries develop, considering its size, the Center for Global Development said yesterday.

The American think tank's Commitment to Development Index ranks 22 rich countries based on how their policies on aid, trade, investment, security, environment, technology and migration promote global development.

Denmark was ranked second, and last year's winner, the Netherlands, tied for third place with Norway.

"Sweden scores better than, for example, the United States measured against its economic size and potential to help," CGD President Nancy Birdsall said.

None of the Group of Seven nations club make it into the top 10. Canada ranked highest among the G7 countries.
