Wen: More aid to developing countries
China is moving to build more facilities in developing countries and send more medical teams there in coming years.
The decision was made at a national conference on economic relations with developing countries that ended in Beijing on Wednesday.
China will also provide more emergency aid to developing countries, train more professionals, encourage more firms to invest in developing countries and try to solve the trade imbalance that some developing countries face.
"We must uphold the principles of mutual respect, treating each other equally, integrating good political relations with economic co-operation, mutual benefit, common development, and seeking concrete results in economic co-operation when advancing relations with the vast majority of the developing countries," said Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday when he met with participants at the conference.
About 400 Chinese provincial-level officials and diplomats attended the two-day conference.
Chinese Vice-Premier Wu Yi and State Councillor Tang Jiaxuan addressed the conference.
China started to provide assistance to developing countries in the 1950s.
The latest conference, held in accordance with the call of President Hu Jintao several days ago that "economic diplomacy" should be strengthened, was aimed at summing up its assistance to the developing countries and sketching out a blueprint for the coming years.
Wen called the developing countries China's "reliable friends" and "friends in deed," saying co-operation with the developing countries is a "basic point" of China's diplomacy.
China must support the development of the developing countries in the course of its own advancement, he stressed.
