  • Yasutami Shimomura

The objective of this concluding chapter is to examine the future prospects of China’s foreign aid by taking advantage of the analyses in the preceding chapters. This book confirms that China has accumulated a wide reserve of intellectual assets through their aid experiences as donor as well as recipient. China has enormous potentiality, although as a donor it needs to overcome various problems. Taking advantage of its past experiences and in view of the magnitude and high growth rate of its aid activities, China can make a major contribution to global development issues. From this starting point, this concluding chapter focuses attention on how to fully utilize the potential of China’s increasing foreign aid.
