1. The government of the Republic of Korea released the Political Statement that contains the 
supports and commitments of leaders of states and major international organizations participating 
in the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan (Busan HLF-4), including President 
Lee Myung-bak, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, 
to the implementation of the outcome of the Busan HLF-4. In the Political Statement, the leaders 
agreed to:

o support the outcome document
o build more inclusive partnerships in line with the changes in the landscape of development 
cooperation amid the emergence of new state and non-state development actors by introducing 
new development models such as South-South and triangular cooperation.
 - embrace diversity and recognize the role of new actors
 - play a catalytic role in directing diverse resources and tools in ways that support the priorities of 
developing countries and make development happen.

o define the shared principles and actions for various actors and stress the importance of the 
political leadership in delivering development.
 * The four shared principles are the ownership of development priorities by developing countries, 
focus on results, inclusive development partnerships, and transparency and accountability to each 
other

o recognize that development is critical to global prosperity and security and set it as a policy priority
o focus on implementing their respective actions at the country level and hold each other accountable.

2. The Political Statement is seen as a major achievement in mustering the political will of leaders 
of states, civic groups, and parliaments toward more inclusive “development partnerships” to 
ensure effective development cooperation beyond the aid effectiveness paradigm.

3. In addition, as it explains the content of the outcome document of the Busan HLF-4 with simple 
and plain language, the Political Statement is expected to contribute to laying the foundation for 
wider public support for development cooperation by enhancing the public understanding and 
support.
