State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi,
Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a pleasure to participate in this meeting of the Group of Friends of the Global Development Initiative (GDI) launched by President Xi Jinping last September.
One, ensure vaccine equity and universal coverage, and related health measures, to end the global Covid-19 pandemic;
Two, encourage expanded food production, revival of food supply chains, and mechanisms to moderate food prices especially for the poorest people;
Three, enhance energy production, remove supply constraints, and mitigate the impact of high energy prices for developing countries;
Four, promote larger public and private investment in sustainable infrastructure – energy, transport, housing, and agriculture – to stimulate growth and move towards a global “green” economy;
Five, promote and implement connectivity projects – such as CPEC and other BRI projects – to stimulate regional integration, trade and industrialization; and
Six, eliminate the “digital divide” and enable the developing countries to integrate into the emerging global digital economy.
I thank you.
