The meeting noted that the world today is confronted by profound changes, rising geopolitical tensions, intensifying major-country rivalry, slow progress in North-South cooperation, and deviation from development issues, along with a widening development gap. We are seeing clear signs of slowdown in the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Development, especially cooperative development, is key to solving global issues and achieving sustainable development for humanity. Thus, it is more pressing than ever before to put development front and center on the international agenda.文章源自英文巴士-https://www.en84.com/14595.html

– Intensifying the efforts to address the most urgent global challenges such as poverty reduction, food security, and public health security. We will deepen policy exchanges, experience sharing and practical cooperation on poverty reduction, promote the building of demonstration villages on agricultural development and poverty reduction, improve livelihood facilities for education, as well as water and power supply, and boost the efforts to end poverty in all its forms. We will continue to provide emergency food assistance, medical teams and free medical services to countries in need. We will actively engage in global and regional food security governance and support the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Program (WFP) of the United Nations in playing their active roles. We will enhance technical experience sharing and application in areas such as storage, logistics, food processing, grain conservation and food loss reduction, help other developing countries enhance their capacity of food production, storage, and loss reduction, and keep the global industrial and supply chains for food and agriculture industries stable and smooth. We will have more international exchanges on disaster prevention and mitigation, enhance humanitarian cooperation to forestall and resolve public risks and emergencies such as major disasters and epidemics.




– Scaling up input in areas such as climate change, green development and connectivity in the digital era to gather sustainable momentum for global development. We will enhance international collaboration on climate response and help developing countries level up their capacity to fight climate change through joint construction of low-carbon demonstration zones, climate change mitigation and adaptation projects, and training programs on capacity building. We will focus on the sustainable use of resources, promote the techniques of reducing costs and increasing efficiency, and enhance the level of green development. We will support the protection of the ecological environment and biological diversity. We will push forward connectivity in the digital era, the construction of traditional and new types of infrastructure in a coordinated way, and improve infrastructure accessibility and trade facilitation.




– Paying closer attention to industrialization, digitalization and personnel capacity building, and fostering new growth areas. We will ramp up cooperation and investment attraction in the special economic zones, industrial parks and science parks by mobilizing aid for trade. We will actively seek greater synergy among digital development strategies and advance digital industrial cooperation. We will conduct efficient, inclusive and fair cooperation on human resources development. By making good use of Luban Workshops, we will support the training and cultivation of technology professionals, and enhance education and exchanges among youth and women.




– Building a new type of North-South partnership for development cooperation. We will support the UN in coordinating global efforts for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, and advocate the principles of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits in global governance. We will continue to promote North-South cooperation as the main channel and step up South-South cooperation and tripartite cooperation. We will be open to drawing on the constructive factors of all parties with regard to international development cooperation's concepts and rules. We uphold the principle of non-interference in other countries' internal affairs and commit to the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities. We will pay attention to addressing insecurity in development and ensure that everyone has equal access to development benefits.
