China's State Council has released its first official report on China's foreign aid program, providing the most authoritative figures on Chinese aid to date. As I told the Associate Press's Gillian Wong, this is a very big step, and should be welcomed. I will look carefully at this report and compare it with my own analysis in The Dragon's Gift (updated for the 2011 paperback, just released in the UK) once I have a minute in the middle of end of semester demands and deadlines ...
