China’s foreign aid: How big is it and what is its aim?

By Luo Jianbo and Zhang Xiaomin

CHINA, August 10, 2014 (ABSTRACT) -- From 2010 to 2012, China allocated a total of 89.34 billion yuan (14.41 billion U.S. dollars) worth of foreign assistance.

There is no need to deny that, by providing foreign aid, China hopes to promote bilateral relations with recipient countries, and to enhance the economic and trade cooperation with them. But most importantly, China is committed to promoting poverty reduction and development of the recipient countries, so as to finally realize the goal of common development together with other developing countries. China is willing to shoulder its international responsibility.

Despite troubled relations at home, the two countries have a shared interest in Africa.

By Clint Richards

CHINA, July 10, 2014 (Diplomat) --- On February 25 China joined the U.S., France, and Japan in signing a security and defense agreementwith Djibouti, as it seeks to further integrate with regional naval operations. Combined Chinese and Japanese inroads into the strategic port of Djibouti could be another exercise in antagonism, or a rare showcase of cooperation. They are both seeking to combat piracy in the Gulf of Aden and protect their burgeoning assets in East Africa. This is a rare instance in which both countries have a shared security interest, and could provide instructive for other points of tension.
