This paper is aimed to understand the role and function of the China International Development Cooperation Agency (CIDCA) in China's aid to Africa and the possible reasons behind its characteristics. By examining the performance and contribution of CIDCA at both domestic and international levels, its functions and roles as well as the driving forces behind them are explored. This paper argues that in the field of aid to Africa, CIDCA is regarded as an "ornament" within the domestic political system, while CIDCA plays a powerful role in enhancing international influence. The novelty of this paper lies in a systematic review and analysis of CIDCA’s role in African aid, where due to the late establishment of CIDCA, there is not enough literature analysis on CIDCA itself. Theoretically, such an analysis can lead to a better understanding and evaluation of the operating mechanism and empirical effects of China’s aid agencies. In practice, some potential institutional reforms could be implemented to promote more effective aid to Africa.
