Find out how the UK will respond to opportunities and challenges, what is being achieved for the UK and who we are working with.
The UK has a development partnership with China.
Asia has seen significant economic growth, but the gains have not been spread evenly across countries. Many of the development, stability and growth challenges in Asia are cross-border in nature and need to be addressed as such. 330 million people still live in extreme poverty (below $1.90 per day) in the Asia-Pacific region. Improved infrastructure, access to markets, the safe movement of people and management of shared water resource all require action at a regional level.
Our regional work in Asia will be supported by the UK’s development partnership with China. The UK and China work together on common development objectives such as helping poor countries address pandemics, recovery following natural disasters and building stronger economies in Africa.
