Foreign Environmental Cooperation Center， Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE-FECO)
The Foreign Economic Cooperation Office (FECO) is an institution affiliated to the Ministry of Environmental Protection of China. In 1989, the Economic Cooperation Leading Group Office of the former National Environmental Protection Agency was founded, mainly responsible for the management of foreign technical assistance loan projects. In May 1997, the Foreign Economic Cooperation Office (FECO) was officially set up, which shares with the Leading Group Office the same staff team but with a different name, to manage the funds of projects in cooperation with international financial organizations and for implementation of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) and bilateral assistances, as well as other foreign cooperation activities in the field of environmental protection. In January 2016, the State Commission Office of Public Sectors Reform approved to grant an additional new name of Technology Center for Environmental Convention Implementation to FECO, with the main functions of organizing environmental convention research, participating in the negotiation of relevant environmental conventions, and undertaking specific technical and routine work of domestic convention implementation.
