UN chief sees key Belt & Road role in Agenda 2030
    2017-May-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Monday that the China-led Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) can be a “very important instrument” to meet the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

“So I’m expecting to participate in the discussion to see how we can extract the maximum possible value of the Belt and Road Initiative for global inclusive and sustainable development,” Guterres said in an interview with Chinese media at U.N. headquarters in New York.

Guterres, who will attend the Belt and Road Forum of International Cooperation in Beijing on May 14 and May 15, said it is an excellent opportunity to see all the important infrastructure projects that the initiative is developing in different parts of the world.

“Multilateralism is the solution to global problems. And China has been a strong pillar of multilateralism,” he said. “When we look at BRI, we see a very important contribution to this solidarity in addressing global problems with international cooperation, where China plays a very central role. So I’m very happy to have the chance to participate in this Belt and Road summit.”

At least 28 heads of state and government will attend the forum, which will be the highest-level international meeting since the open and inclusive initiative was proposed by President Xi Jinping in 2013. The proposal aims to build an infrastructure network and cooperation along ancient Silk Road routes, linking Asia to Africa and Europe.

More than 100 countries and international organizations have joined the initiative, and more than 40 have signed cooperation agreements with China, which has invested more than US$50 billion in related programs.

The secretary-general believes the initiative and Agenda 2030 move “in the same direction.”
