China ‘no longer needs food aid’

_40624001_paddy_body_bbc From BBC: “The UN World Food Programme is urging China to become a bigger donor instead of a recipient of its aid.

The call comes as the United Nations organisation phases out its aid programmes to China next year.

In the past quarter of a century the World Food Programme has helped feed 35 million Chinese but now it says the country no longer needs its help.

It is a sign that China’s economic growth is changing the country’s role on the world stage. ”
