REF: STATE 27676 
 
1.  The GOA focuses its public development assistance (ODA) 
projects on certain "priority and cooperation countries." 
None of the Andean states are in this category. 
Consequently, bilateral projects in the Andean region only 
accounted for a tiny fraction (0.4%) of Austria's total ODA, 
which amounted to Euro 456.8 million (USD 593.8 million) in 
2003.  33.5% of Austria's ODA goes to EU funds.  There are 
no statistics available on the use of specific Member 
States' contributions for EU projects. 
 
2.  Austria's ODA for the Andean States in EUR (USD):
