China and Qatar have expanded areas of cooperation from traditional concerns like energy and infrastructure to high-tech industries, said Chinese Ambassador to Qatar, Zhou Jian.

The fruitful cooperation has improved economic and trade cooperation between the two countries and boosted the diversified growth of Qatar's economy, Zhou added.

The agricultural cooperation between China and Qatar is not the only such case.

China has helped other developing countries improve agricultural production, contributing to world food security, helping countries cope with food crises, and advancing global poverty reduction and sustainable agricultural development.

Liu Zhiyi, a researcher at the Foreign Economic Cooperation Center at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs told Farmers' Daily that agricultural diplomacy leads to mutual benefit and promotes people-to-people connectivity.

China brings capital, technology, agricultural equipment and experience to other developing countries, while the latter increase employment and improve the supply of agricultural produce, Liu added.

The 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China stressed the promotion of high-standard opening up, of which international cooperation in agricultural and rural areas is an integral part, said Xie Chaoping, an associate professor at Nanjing Agricultural University.

Chinese agriculture "going global" has led to a significant improvement in China's science and technology, Xie said, adding that international cooperation helps shorten agricultural technology research and development by 10 to 15 years on average, saving 30 percent to 50 percent on R&D funds.

China has engaged in agricultural cooperation with more than 140 countries and regions, and offered 1,000 types of agricultural technology to other developing countries, increasing crop yields by 30 to 60 percent on average, and benefiting 1.5 million small agricultural households, Xie said.
