  • Introduction: China and International Development: Challenges and
    • Authors: Jing Gu; Xiaoyun Li, Gerald Bloom, Xiulan Zhang
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: In parallel to its domestic economic boom, China has also been growing as an international actor and as a ‘Rising Power’ in global development. This introduction outlines the need for further understanding of China's own development experience, its increasing involvement in development activities in low‐ and middle‐income countries, and its growing engagement in global governance structures. The articles highlighted contribute valuable expertise and insight from both Chinese and non‐Chinese perspectives, to map the shifting landscape of China's engagement in global development, and contribute to mutual understanding between traditional donors and rising powers in development cooperation.

  • China's Role in the Rising of the South: Vision for 2030
    • Authors: Angang Hu; Yuning Gao, Yilong Yan, Xing Wei
      Pages: 6 - 21
      Abstract: This article examines China's major development contributions, looking at its wider impact on world development. In particular, the article examines the impact of China's development on the changing pattern between the North and South and the human development index. The factors and related regimes behind these phenomena are discussed and a conceptual model is constructed, providing a meta‐analysis of the evolution of China's role, based on the structural interpretation of external impetus and barriers, as well as internal advantages and shortcomings. The authors' long‐term projections show that the rise of the South, led by China, will be the most important shift in the world's landscape with respect to the development of the emerging world, perhaps leading other large developing economies to play a more prominent role in international development in the future, bringing common development, common prosperity and common progress to the world.

  • Difference or Indifference: China's Development Assistance Unpacked
    • Authors: Xiaoyun Li; Dan Banik, Lixia Tang, Jin Wu
      Pages: 22 - 35
      Abstract: China's growing role in international development through so‐called ‘South–South cooperation’ has attracted considerable global attention. This article aims to provide a nuanced understanding of the nature of foreign aid policies implemented by China and help facilitate a new set of dialogues between China and more established providers of aid. It unpacks the developmental side of the story by first analysing the official discourse of Chinese aid in a historical context and thereafter examines the practice of conditional aid in relation to the Chinese emphasis on non‐interference and mutual interest. The empirical basis for this article is largely derived from field studies undertaken in Malawi, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. We argue that although centrally controlled, Chinese aid has been consistently developmental, reflecting both the country's own development path and, to a lesser extent, international developmental goals.

  • China's Foreign Aid Policy and Architecture
    • Authors: Lan Xue
      Pages: 36 - 45
      Abstract: As China's engagement in low‐income countries has deepened, particularly in Africa, so has criticism of China's development programmes and practices. New developments in Africa and the international aid architecture warrant a re‐examination of China's foreign assistance and development architecture, and its capacity in managing this growing engagement. This article outlines the modes of Chinese foreign assistance, the institutional arrangements and the principles that guide it. It argues that, while China's foreign aid has been characterised by several strengths, including its practical orientation, its consistency of principles, and its focus on high‐level exchanges, these same features may also be fault lines for both the future effectiveness of China's aid programmes, and its international reputation as a rising power in development. Evaluation and future reform of China's aid architecture is needed in order to enhance China's aid capacity and effectiveness.

  • The Impact of China on the Donor Landscape in African Fragile States
    • Authors: Richard Schiere
      Pages: 46 - 56
      Abstract: This article analyses the impact of China on the donor landscape in African fragile states. This is undertaken by first discussing the global trends of South–South collaboration as part of the broader post‐Busan development debate, and secondly, the specific role of China in four African fragile states, which are respectively Liberia, Angola, Mali and Sudan. The article has two main findings. Firstly, China provides additional development opportunities but is not applying the same development cooperation model as traditional Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donors. This fragmentation of global development cooperation modalities requires capacity to coordinate donors by aid‐recipient countries. Secondly, as China's economic interests grow in Africa, it is also expanding its support for regional stability by participating in UN peacekeeping operations. One of the key conditions for China's participation, however, is a clear mandate by an African regional organisation such as the African Union and Regional Economic Communities. This approach ensures that China maintains its principles of respecting national sovereignty and non‐interference in the domestic affairs of other countries.

  • China and African Development: Partnership not Mentoring
    • Authors: Jing Gu; Anthony Carty
      Pages: 57 - 69
      Abstract: This article states the conclusions of major field research into the impact of Chinese public and private economic activity on governance in Africa. China has gone into parts of Africa and sectors of African activity where Western actors have been reluctant to venture, yet receives criticism for not reaching standards of governance which the West itself is not able to apply. The Chinese go into Africa on a basis of equality and partnership but are unclear how to impose standards of conduct which are not integral to a consensual relationship or how to guide the development of standards which they do not have at home. China is itself engaging in a continuing process of economic reform and increasing privatisation. Nonetheless, it has developed a doctrine of effective governance in Africa which stresses responsibility and accountability, provision of basic services and social stability, a central Chinese objective at home and abroad.

  • China's Role in Burma's Development
    • Authors: Neil Renwick
      Pages: 70 - 84
      Abstract: China has been a long‐standing partner for Burma (Myanmar), providing important political, military and economic support. Burma's reform process poses new questions and challenges for China. China's interests in Burma are primarily economic‐driven by its need for strategic resources and are highly controversial. This study argues that China's approach to Burma's development is determined by its own national economic interests. Beijing's view is that this is a ‘win‐win’ situation. This is a view under critical review in Burma as it seeks to re‐balance its foreign relationships. This article details the critical point at which Sino–Burmese relations now stand, explains Burma's current development profile, outlines Chinese involvement in Burma and explains China's development approach to Burma in terms of China's national economic, political and security interests.

  • China and the BRICS Development Bank: Legitimacy and Multilateralism in
           South–South Cooperation
    • Authors: Adriana Erthal Abdenur
      Pages: 85 - 101
      Abstract: In 2013 the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) grouping agreed to undertake what will, when implemented, become its most concrete project yet: the BRICS Development Bank (BDB). From the perspective of the Chinese government, which already leads a vast and far‐reaching cooperation programme, the bank will not represent a significant addition to its cooperation portfolio. What, then, motivates China's participation in the initiative, and what can it bring to the table? This article analyses China's interests in the BDB in the light of its past experiences with development, at home and abroad. I argue that China's interests in backing the bank project are primarily political. In addition to offering a concrete opportunity to legitimise China's multilateralism strategy – burnishing China's image as a responsible yet pro‐reform global player – the bank project also allows China to influence international development norms. At the same time, the project also poses challenges for China, especially in terms of promoting poverty alleviation without resorting to trickle‐down assumptions about an infrastructure‐focused approach to development.

  • China's Development Finance: What Issues for Reporting and Monitoring
    • Authors: Jiajun Xu; Richard Carey
      Pages: 102 - 113
      Abstract: This article explores the implications of China's rise for global reporting and monitoring systems (RMSs) in the field of development cooperation. Beyond its fast‐growing – albeit still modest – foreign aid, China has emerged in the last decade as a globally pre‐eminent source of development finance. While China's endeavours are comparable to previous rising powers that strived to build linkages into global commodity chains and to participate in advanced industrial and technology value creation, what makes China distinct from OECD capital providers is its unprecedented scale, cohesive state‐market banking and enterprise institutions, and extensive utilisation of official finance for risk‐taking. This poses an existential crisis for DAC's ODA reporting system, helping to precipitate a wide‐ranging renovation process. Hence, China's intentions and capacities regarding the reporting and monitoring of its development finance have a potentially formative influence on the development of a new, wider DAC reporting system and on other international RMSs in the development finance field as well.

  • Business Borderlands: China's Overseas State Agribusiness
    • Authors: Xiuli Xu; Gubo Qi, Xiaoyun Li
      Pages: 114 - 124
      Abstract: In the context of widespread interests in China's agro‐state‐owned enterprises (SOEs), this article starts demystifying four narratives prevailing internationally. In this intellectual landscape, the article coins an innovative approach, ‘farm as business borderland’ to investigate an agro‐SOE in Tanzania. Based on the ethnographic case study, the article presents the tensions arising between the case farm and its Beijing headquarters on the one hand, and between Chinese managers and local stakeholders on the other. The authors examine the reasons why the travelling business bureaucracy rationalities from Beijing to Tanzania works and how this is adapted locally in the farm's daily practices. The authors also explore why and how Chinese managers' footloose expatriate lifestyle is not as relevant as normally expected in constructing convergence with locals. Finally the article discusses the implications of the new approach on international development inquiry and global governance practices.
