For example, the pilot community driven development project implemented by the Foreign Capital and Project Management Center of PADO (FCPMC) and the World Bank in four provinces of China restricted the revolving CDFs to natural villages (Liu and Gibson 2007).
The government led CDF under the World Bank TCC 5 project requires that the duration of using a loan for any borrower in three years be under 24 months (FCPMC 2007).
The government is able to transfer the government contributions to the village collectives for public use once a CDF fails to meet certain basic criteria (FCPMC 2007).

The Canadian food and beverage industry is predicting significant growth potential for the next 10 years, according to a 1998 FCPMC member survey.
FCPMC says there are two major areas, which if left unchanged, will limit growth: updating of the current regulatory environment, which is diminishing industry competitiveness and growth; and reduction and future elimination of non-tariff trade barriers.
The use of non-tariff trade barriers as protectionist measures are serving to inhibit Canada's ability to take full advantage of its reputation as a producer of high quality food and agricultural inputs, FCPMC said.
