Deborah Brautigam

A dry list to some, a treasure trove of information on one aspect of the notoriously "untransparent" Chinese aid program to others.

Here is a link to a list of 129 training programs for officials and nominees from Asian countries, sponsored by China's foreign aid program, and held in China, in 2011. (This particular list was circulated in Pakistan.) Most seminars are about a month. The list has the implementing organization and the seminar topics include, inter alia:
  • Economic management
  • Learning "commercial" Chinese (this one is three months) 
  • Management of community-based Red Cross and Red Crescent projects
  • Female capacity building
  • Coastal region economic development
  • Eco-agriculture
  • Railway construction, planning, and engineering
  • Pediatric critical care
  • Financial openness and financial risk control
  • Grain storage technology
