Conservative Friends of International Development.

Conservative Friends of International Development was set up in 2011 as a forum to promote effective international development in line with Conservative Party values. 

International development is not just the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do.  

CFID advocates on behalf of the many Conservatives who recognise that maintaining the UKs commitment to international development, free trade and conflict prevention offers value for Britain and value for money.
