China is sending US$1 million worth of aid to cyclone-devastated Myanmar, the Ministry of Commerce announced on Tuesday.
The aid includes US$500,000 in money aid and US$500,000 worth of relief supplies, according to a statement posted on the ministry's website.
The supplies mainly include tents, blankets and biscuits, which are scheduled to arrive at Yangon, Myanmar's capital, on Wednesday.
A devastating cyclone struck five provinces of Myanmar last weekend, killing at least 15,000 people and leaving 30,000 missing.
