UNOPS has been working in China since 2015. By providing technical assistance and advisory services, the organization has supported the government – fostering global innovation as well as improving health, agriculture and food safety.

In the country, UNOPS helps implement a UN sustainable procurement knowledge-sharing and capacity-building platform. This is done in cooperation with other UN organizations and the Ministry of Commerce, through the China International Center for Economic and Technical Exchanges. The platform helps small and medium-sized enterprises and women-owned businesses to directly engage in UN procurement processes and align with sustainable standards and best practices.
