Summary/Abstract: The year 2009 was, from the point of view of Slovak official development assistance (ODA or Slovak Aid hereafter), the first year of implementing the new Medium-Term Strategy for Official Development Assistance of the Slovak Republic for the years 2009-2013. It was also significant for the efforts to take steps in the desired strategic direction. On the other hand, it also bore the consequences of the hectic transformations made in the previous years as well as of continual personnel changes. Ostensibly it could even be labeled a year of search for a sure footing for the very first step in the direction set by the Medium-Term Strategy. What is, however, left out of this orientation are important pillars such as properly determined systems, a personnel base, evaluations and expert discussion to enable the specific practical implementation of plans.
