  • Hou Xiong
Part of the Research Series on the Chinese Dream and China’s Development Path book series (RSCDCDP)


Chinese multilateral foreign assistance (hereinafter called “multilateral foreign aid”) is an integral part of China’s foreign aid, and its importance grows with each passing day. With the development of China’s multilateral diplomacy, Chinese multilateral foreign aid will continue to expand. In recent years, its scale has gradually expanded and the forms of this aid are becoming increasingly diversified. Up to this day, the provision of funds or services to a vast majority of multilateral development organizations by China is not merely the increased awareness of China’s global responsibility and the fulfillment of China’s international obligations. These contributions are becoming some of China’s fundamental tools in promoting the common development of the world and realizing common prosperity.
