With globalization and regional integration underway, South-South cooperation and knowledge sharing have become increasingly important. To facilitate knowledge and experience sharing, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) jointly initiated the PRC-ADB Knowledge Sharing Platform (KSP) in 2009, which has become an annual event since then. The KSP brings together senior government officials from the PRC and ADB’s other developing member countries (DMCs) as well as experts from relevant fields to discuss development challenges and opportunities, and share innovative ideas related to policies, institutions, and practices for sustainable development. The 2011 KSP focused on agriculture development, and was held in Beijing and Zhengzhou, Henan province in the PRC during 8-11 November 2011.
