China reiterated its commitment to the United Nations Literacy Decade initiatives and UNESCO's global literacy campaign.

State Councilor Chen Zhili said in her speech on July 31 at the opening ceremony of the UNESCO Regional Conference in Support of Global Literacy held in Beijing that China would work with the UNESCO and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region to make persistent efforts on promoting literacy.

Chen noted that China would offer the UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy to government agencies, NGOs and individuals in recognition of their remarkable contribution to rural education and literacy and education of women and children.

From 2006, local government of China's Shandong province would offer 150,000 USD a year to fund the project. The first phase will be five years.

Chen also promised to make the support for the literacy education in the Asia-Pacific region a part of Chinese government's commitment to the bilateral and multi-lateral programs on promoting human resources capacity building in developing countries.

Support will also be given to China-based UNESCO International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education so that the institution will be brought into full play.
