“We should always strive for green and low-carbon development and ensure a clean and beautiful Asia-Pacific.
Protecting the ecological environment and tackling climate change is a common challenge facing all humanity.
We need to enhance economic and technical cooperation, speed up coordinated digital and green development, advance the transition and upgrading of energy, resources, and industrial and consumption structures, and promote green economic and social development.
This year we jointly formulated the Bangkok Goals on Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) Economy, which aims to advance ecological and environmental protection and economic development in a coordinated way.
China will provide support for its implementation. Last year at the United Nations, I proposed the Global Development Initiative (GDI), calling for enhanced practical cooperation in poverty reduction, food, energy, health and other areas, and urging expedited implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
I welcome Asia-Pacific countries to take an active part in the Initiative.”
