In Brief

China's trilateral aid cooperation has been growing in recent years along with its overseas development assistance program. As the largest emerging donor, China's trilateral aid cooperation with the United States (US), the leading traditional donor, and Timor-Leste presents an interesting example to examine this new model of aid delivery in the changing international aid landscape.

This trilateral project, together with the China– Australia–Papua New Guinea trilateral project on malaria control, and the China–United Nations Development Programme–Cambodia trilateral project on cassava, make up the three case studies for my PhD program on Chinese trilateral aid cooperation. It is the first trilateral aid cooperation between China and the US in Timor-Leste and in the Asia–Pacific region. This paper summarises some research findings arising from my fieldwork in Dili from January to February 2015.
