PHOTO XINHUA BEIJING -- Chinese President Xi Jinping called on the international community to work together to promote development, create an enabling environment and foster new driving forces for global development to work for a global development partnership.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made remarks on Friday in a congratulatory letter to the International Civil Society Solidarity Conference on the Global Development Initiative.

The implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been impeded, and the global economy is now affected by multiple factors, according to Xi.

In spite of the difficulties and challenges, Xi said only when all sides come together with firm confidence to combat COVID 19, promote development with concerted efforts, and earnestly implement the 2030 Agenda, can people in all countries live a better life and human society embrace a brighter future.

Xi believes that international civil societies will help to consolidate and enhance popular support for the implementation of the Global Development Initiative.

Xi said that China is ready to join the 2030 Agenda to contribute more to building a community with a shared future for humanity and usher in a new era of prosperity and development.
