China’s Overseas Development Policy in a World ‘Beyond Aid’


Over the last five years, the global development landscape has changed rapidly, leading governments, practitioners and academics alike to ask whether it is indeed time to move development policy and practice “beyond aid.” At the centre of this evolution, China has emerged as a critical player. China’s increasing role as a provider of foreign aid is the subject of considerable interest and debate both within and outside of China. In this context, The Asia Foundation convened a China Foreign Aid Roundtable to facilitate knowledge sharing and promote understanding among diverse stakeholders. Consisting of eight sessions and twenty presentations, the roundtable convened a wide range of national and institutional perspectives on China’s overseas development policy.
