The Centre for Global Development ranks the Netherlands number one in their Commitment to Development Index.

AMSTERDAM - According to the Centre for Global Development in Washington, the Netherlands is the world's most generous donor to the development of poor countries.

Their Commitment to Development Index ranked the Netherlands as number one since 2005.

Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Ireland followed for 2008.

The US think-tank considers development funds, trade, environment and migration.

The Netherlands was criticised on the last point. The CDI states that fees for foreign students are too high, and too few migrants from developing countries are admitted to the Netherlands
