China will boost UN development aid

Hits:  UpdateTime:2016-09-21 08:46:29

The amount that China will provide to United Nations efforts toward global

sustainable development in 2020 will be $100 million more than it gave last year,

Premier Li Keqiang said in New York on Monday.

In addition, the country's contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS,

Tuberculosis and Malaria will amount to $18 million in the next three years,

Li announced at United Nations headquarters.

 

He made the remarks while addressing the Roundtable on the Implementation

of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Global Process and China's

Practice, which was hosted by China's UN permanent mission.

 

The amount donated by China to UN development agencies last year was not

immediately available. The total figure given in 2010, 2011 and 2012 to various

international development agencies and the global fund for fighting diseases

was 1.76 billion yuan ($264 million), Li said.

 

The premier also said sustainable development is a common cause for the world,

and he called for the international community to tackle unbalanced development,

promote inclusive economic growth and jointly address global challenges such

as public health and climate change.

 

"China will continue to make unrelenting efforts to promote sustainable development

and will actively participate in cooperation with the international community in this

area," he told participants of the event, including UN Secretary-General Ban

Ki-moon, UN General Assembly President Peter Thomson and heads of other

international organizations.

 

Li said China lifted 400 million people out of poverty in the past 15 years, and

reduced the mortality rate for children younger than 5 by two-thirds and the

mortality rate for pregnant women by three-fourths during that time.

 

He said China has approved a road map for implementing the 2030 Agenda for

Sustainable Development, a blueprint the UN adopted in September last year for

ending poverty and hunger, promoting equality and protecting the environment

in the years leading up to 2030.

 

Helen Clark, administrator of the UN Development Programme, said the agency

looked forward to continuing its work with China to support the rapid progress

that China seeks to make on its sustainable development goals.

 

China is showing its determination to lead on implementation by being among the

countries that took part in the first national voluntary reviews at this year's high-level

political forum for sustainable development, Clark said.

 

Haibing Ma, senior research associate and China program manager at the Worldwatch

Institute, said that, in a year of globalization, China's rapid economic growth has

become one of the positive leading forces for the global economy, which is good

for sustainable development goals.

 

Wang Yusheng, a researcher at the China Foundation for International Studies and

Academic Exchanges, said China's pledge showed its contribution as a major country

to global governance and its aid to disadvantaged groups around the world.

 

As China's economic strength grows, it can increasingly help other developing

countries to alleviate poverty and eliminate hunger, Wang said.
