Chinese envoy calls for advancement of Belt and Road Initiative

October 08, 2019


Abstract : A Chinese envoy on Monday called for the joint advancement of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for sustainable development.

UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese envoy on Monday called for the joint advancement of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for sustainable development.

"We should advance together the building of the Belt and Road (Initiative) to achieve high-quality development," said Wu Haitao, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations.

The Belt and Road Initiative focuses on development, emphasizes the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, pursuits open, green and clean cooperation, and commits to high-standard cooperation to improve people's lives and promote sustainable development, he told a meeting of the Second Committee of the UN General Assembly, which is responsible for economic and financial affairs.

In the six years since the initiative was launched, China has signed more than 190 documents on cooperation with over 160 countries and international organizations and has jointly established 82 cooperation parks overseas with participating countries, creating more than 300,000 jobs at local level, he noted.

In April, the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation released a list of 283 concrete results. Participating enterprises signed project cooperation agreements worth more than 64 billion U.S. dollars, said Wu.

The BRI is fully aligned with the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and will help accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals worldwide, said Wu.
