China has achieved positive results in providing foreign aid through cooperation with international aid programs and other countries over the past years, says a white paper released on Thursday.

According to the white paper released by the Information Office of the State Council, titled China's Foreign Aid, China has trained more than 6,000 technicians for other developing countries under the Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (TCDC) program since 1981.

Cooperating with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, China had sent more than 700 agricultural experts and technicians to Africa, the Caribbean and the Asia-Pacific area by the end of 2009, the paper says.

The country also conducted effective cooperation with multilateral organizations, it says.

Further, within the framework of the Greater Mekong Sub-regional cooperation, China, together with Thailand and the Asian Development Bank, raised funds to build the Laos section of the Kunming-Bangkok Highway, which was opened to traffic in March 2008, it says.

At present, China, Thailand, Laos and the Asian Development Bank are working together to build a bridge over the Mekong River for the Kunming-Bangkok Highway, it says.

It says that the rapidly-developing South-South cooperation has become an effective and beneficial supplement to South-North co-operation.

It notes that under the framework of the South-South cooperation, China will work with all parties concerned to conduct complementary and fruitful trilateral and regional cooperation on the basis of respecting the needs of recipient countries and jointly promote the process of global poverty alleviation.

In February 2011, China established a new inter-agency coordination mechanism on the basis of the country' s foreign aid inter-agency liaison mechanism first created in 2008 to strengthen the coordination of the departments concerned in the management of foreign aid, it says.

The Ministry of Commerce is the administrative department authorized by the State Council to oversee foreign aid, it says.
