In June 2016, China and the FAO agreed to broaden the scope of their successful collaboration over recent decades towards greater food security. Jointly, they worked to devise a deeper set of efforts and goals aimed at promoting rural development across the region.
It was reported in the communication that since 1990, China has successfully lifted 138 million people out of chronic hunger. It has reached the World Food Summit Goal, in addition to reaching the Millennium Development Goal of halving the prevalence of hunger ahead of the 2015 deadline. Throughout this time the FAO has provided technical support to over 400 agricultural projects that ultimately have benefited tens of millions of people.
