RESPONSIBILITIES AS WORLD POWER
Sustainable development was the theme of the current UN General Assembly.

On behalf of the Chinese government, Li released the country's national plan for implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. When chairing a roundtable on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) at the UN headquarters, he said China will have greater resolution and make greater efforts to ensure the achievement of the SDGs at the earliest time possible.
As a leader and implementer of sustainable development, China has fixed a plan for two centuries of development as a long-term strategy and the "13th Five-Year Plan" for a short-term one.
While realizing the "China Dream" for national rejuvenation, China is also making substantial contributions to world sustainable development at the same time.
As the world's most populous nation and a responsible world power, China is actively participating in relevant international cooperation plans and invites other countries to join its own development projects and share their benefits. The aim of China is to contribute to building a world of abundance, full development and dignity.
WISDOM OF WORLD POWER
