The agency is intended to give full play to the role of foreign aid as a key instrument of China's diplomacy as a major country, the reform plan says.
President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said in a report delivered at the 19th CPC National Congress in October that China will increase aid to developing countries, especially the least-developed countries.
