Fighting Ebola and strengthening China’s humanitarian assistance

Considering China’s valuable experience in fighting SARS in 2002-2003 and the fact it is the second largest economy in the world, China needs to further increase its contribution in this global battle with Ebola and increase the share of its humanitarian assistance in foreign aid.

  • the fight against Ebola has been regarded as a new frontier of China-US competition in Africa

  • strengthening China’s humanitarian aid can
    display China’s sense of responsibility and soft
    power
