Cllr Lisa Duffy said, "I am delighted to have been chosen by Paul Nuttall to advance UKIP's case in this very important policy area.
"I shall be seeking to show how Britain can be a true friend to people in developing countries while also sending far less of our taxpayers' money overseas -often to corrupt regimes - in outdated aid programmes.
"Under my stewardship UKIP will remain the party that refuses to endorse politically correct and bloated aid programmes which fail to offer the best path to growing prosperity for poorer countries."
UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall said, "Lisa is compassionate and fair, but absolutely no pushover.
"The exact qualities needed to reassess who should receive our hard-earned foreign aid, and who should not."
