As the windows of technology, information and international cooperation of China agricultural machinery, food, and agro-products processing industry, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Mechanization Sciences (CAAMS)has organized various of foreign aid training programs, covering the area of agricultural equipment technology, agro-processing equipment technology, rural area new energy, rural area water conservation, agricultural policies and standards etc., from Chinese Government since 1980s, Through various forms of bilateral, multilateral, regional and overseas special training programs, CAAMS has trained more than 1,000 technical, business and management staff for over 70 countries and regions, and made great contribution to international S&T, economy and trade exchanges and cooperation. As the national scientific and technological training base, CAAMS was highly praised by Chinese Government and widely publicized by many national media on several occasions.

Through organizing the foreign aid training programs for developing countries, CAAMS has strengthened the traditional friendship with the recipient countries, promoted exchanges and cooperation in the field of agriculture among developing countries; CAAMS has created positive conditions for local applicable technologies and mature products to enter the oversea markets through the training courses to let the representatives of developing countries know and understand the development and extension system of Chinese agricultural and food industry. Combining with the advantages of industrial position of CAAMS, CAAMS has initiated and organized a number of government projects under the framework of international cooperation exchange projects which improved the level of relevant technologies of CAAMS, and the ability of engineers and technicians to undertake international cooperation projects, formed a successful mode of training as combined with training, cooperation, promotion and service. This form has greatly improved the international influence of CAAMS and the domestic industry, set up a great platform for further deep cooperation and exchanges with developing countries in wider areas.
