China urges G20 members to start implementing 2030 SDGs

United Nations—China’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs and G20 Sherpa Li Baodong has urged all parties to start implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in a comprehensive manner at a high-level thematic debate.
Li attended the United nations General Assembly High-Level Thematic Debate on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and held dialogues on the preparatory process of G20 Hangzhou Summit with Group 77 and other stakeholders from Tuesday to Thursday.
In the thematic debate, Li pointed out that as the largest developing country, China always put development at the top of its agenda.
In September, President Xi Jinping made solemn commitments that China stands ready to work with other parties to contribute to the 2030 Agenda, he said. “Currently, China has launched its implementation process and included it into China’s mid-to-long-term national development program, which well aligns China’s domestic efforts with the international development agenda,” he added.
Li said that as the G20 presidency this year, China is actively promoting the G20 to contribute to the international development cooperation and the implementation of the 2030 agenda.—Xinhua
