China International Development Cooperation Agency

The Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy published in September 2019 an analysis titled "The Ins and Outs of China's International Development Agency" by Marina Rudyak, Heidelberg University.

Established in 2018, the China International Development Cooperation Agency (CIDCA) combined into one agency most of China's foreign aid program. The author concluded that the CIDCA's highly ambitious agenda is a clear sign that, after years of considerable growth in China's development finance, the underlying bureaucratic system is now beginning to mature. The changes that accompanied the creation of the CIDCA show that development aid is at the forefront of Chinese policymakers agenda, but it remains to be seen how much of this promise the agency can make good on in the forseeable future.
