Regardless of official rhetoric on foreign aid presented as charity by developed nations to poorer states it serves interests of donor countries equally. Although Poland has tended recently to consider development cooperation as a useful tool of promotion of its democratic transformation, it can do more to support its broader goals. To improve the impact of this instrument Poland should increase the budget for bilateral aid and supplement its democratisation agenda with more traditional development cooperation, in order to promote its image as an economically prosperous and technologically advanced country.
