Other official flows are official sector transactions which do not meet the ODA criteria, e.g.:
i.) Grants to developing countries for representational or essentially commercial purposes;
ii.) Official bilateral transactions intended to promote development but having a grant element of less than 25 per cent;
iii.) Official bilateral transactions, whatever their grant element, that are primarily export-facilitating in purpose. This category includes by definition export credits extended directly to an aid recipient by an official agency or institution ("official direct export credits");
iv.) The net acquisition by governments and central monetary institutions of securities issued by multilateral development banks at market terms;
v.) Subsidies (grants) to the private sector to soften its credits to developing countries [see Annex 3, paragraph A3.5.iv)b)];
vi.) Funds in support of private investment.
