To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how much Official Development Assistance his Department plans to allocate to projects in China in 2021.
29 April 2021
The majority of the Department’s Official Development Assistance spend is allocated thematically, rather than geographically. Information on the level of funding for work with China in 2021 will not be available until the completion of the Statistics on International Development (SID) return at the completion of this Financial Year.
BEIS only funds work with China on addressing global development challenges together. China is the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases and a key driver of global growth. Meeting the Paris Agreement and limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C is impossible without action from China.
