The United Nations (UN) applauds China’s planned Global Development Initiative (GDI), saying it will expedite the 2030 Agenda’s implementation.
The United Nations stands ready to offer technical assistance and support to ensure that the GDI is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and becomes best practice.
The Global Development Initiative (GDI), proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping, is a plan to help underdeveloped nations develop, boost global economic recovery in the post-pandemic age, and improve international development cooperation.
The GDI hopes to increase the pace of the 2030 Agenda in order to combat the pandemic’s new wave of poverty.
Poverty alleviation, food security, COVID-19 response and vaccines, development financing, climate change and green development, industrialization, the digital economy, and connectivity are among the primary areas of collaboration proposed by the GDI.
To promote the GDI both locally and internationally, the UN would collaborate with China to provide the finest technical assistance and guidance, ensuring that it is in line with the SDGs’ ambitions, which have been agreed upon by all member states.
