Beijing, November 4 (Guangming Online) – An exhibition was held to mark the 40th anniversary of WFP-China partnership on Oct. 31, 2019. Qu Sixi, representative of WFP China Office, and Corinne Woods, communications director of WFP, joined the event.
UN World Food Programme (WFP) first entered China in 1979. It had implemented more than 70 poverty reduction and post-disaster rehabilitation projects, and more than 30 million Chinese people were assisted by those projects from 1979 to 2005.
Since 2005, the year it stopped receiving food aid from WFP, China has become an increasingly important donor to WPF. In 2016, the Chinese government and WFP signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen their cooperation to end global hunger.[ Editor: SRQ ]
