China has not been left behind in terms of cooperation among non-governmental organizations within its national borders. NGOs have been defending the citizens' shared interests for quite a while now. Environment, gender equality, poverty, public health, and education, among others, are just but a few aspects that the Chinese Non-Governmental Organizations focus on. The Non-Governmental organizations in China assist the government in coming up with policies and enforcing them to ensure that the people's shared interests are safeguarded. Transactional collaboration in funding shared opinions, campaigns, and advocacy assists Chinese non-governmental organizations in offering their services and, in some instances, questioning the status quo.
