Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen
Good morning, everyone!
Today, we are very happy to meet online and offline in Guiyang to seek the great cause of low-carbon transformation and green development. We believe that this will definitely promote the construction of global ecological civilization. On behalf of the national development and Reform Commission, I would like to extend my warm congratulations on the success of the conference!
Last September 22nd, President Xi Jinping solemnly declared that China's carbon dioxide emissions will strive to reach the peak by 2030, and strive to achieve carbon neutralization by 2060. Subsequently, a series of major announcements were made at the climate ambition summit, leaders' climate summit and other major international cooperation fields, which strongly led the Global Climate Governance and demonstrated China's great mind and responsibility for building a community of shared future for mankind.
Assistant Foreign Minister Wu JiangHao:
We should follow the law of ecosystem operation, pay equal attention to development and protection, and make overall use and restoration. Guided by the new development concept, we should accelerate the formation of green development and lifestyle, and leave a clean and beautiful world to future generations.
We should uphold true multilateralism, take international law as the foundation, fairness and justice as the gist, and take effective action as the guidance, establish a fair, reasonable and win-win global environmental governance system, and jointly protect the blue planet earth.
We must adhere to one belt, one road, namely, green, low-carbon and sustainable development, promote transformation and upgrading of the economy, energy and industrial structure, explore environmental protection and economic development, create employment, eliminate poverty and increase synergies, build a green "one belt and one road" and fully implement the 2030 sustainable development agenda.
We should deepen practical cooperation and work together to meet the challenge of climate change. We should adhere to the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, fully implement the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change and its Paris Agreement, and avoid dealing with climate change as a geopolitical chip and an excuse for trade barriers. Developed countries should earnestly fulfill their commitments and help developing countries improve their capacity and resilience to cope with climate change.
This year, China will host the 15th Conference of the parties to the Convention on biological diversity and the second UN Global Conference on sustainable transport. We look forward to working with all parties to continuously inject new impetus into the realization of sustainable development goals, and work together to build a clean and beautiful world with common prosperity and common destiny.
Assistant Foreign Minister Wu JiangHao:
Dear Secretary Chen Yiqin, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, friends, it's a great pleasure to attend the 2021 Guiyang International Forum on ecological civilization to discuss with you the grand plan of ecological civilization construction and seek the way of green and low-carbon development. First of all, on behalf of the Ministry of foreign affairs of the people's Republic of China, I would like to extend my warm congratulations on the holding of the forum.
Under the warm care of President Xi Jinping, the forum has become an important platform for communication and cooperation in the field of global ecological civilization construction. The theme of this forum is "low carbon transformation and green development" - jointly building a community of human and natural life ", which is in line with the current trend of global ecological civilization construction, meets the common expectations of the international community, and provides important opportunities for promoting ecological exchanges and cooperation among countries.
China attaches great importance to the construction of ecological civilization, fully implementing Xi Jinping's ecological civilization thought, and holding and practicing the beautiful scenery of green hills and rivers, the concept of Jinshan Yinshan, is committed to building a community of human and natural life. It is an important participant, contributor and leader of the construction of global ecological civilization.
At present, novel coronavirus pneumonia is intertwined with the great changes in the past century. It is a long way to go to cope with climate change, improve global environmental governance, build global ecological civilization and build a community of human destiny.
[Laurent Fabius, chairman of the French Constitutional Council and former Prime Minister of France]:
What actions should be taken is well known. First of all, we should develop green and efficient energy, stay away from coal and increase renewable energy. The second is the development of clean transportation (land, sea and air transportation driven by electricity), and the second is the construction of green buildings (energy efficient, material efficient, net zero energy consumption). Then it is to seek solutions based on nature (biodiversity, agriculture, waste utilization), with innovation as the key point to invest in R & D, promote economic cycle, relieve economic pressure, and enhance the ability of economy to adapt to climate change. To encourage the use of decarbonization technology, carbon pricing is a very useful means to promote these initiatives. In the next few days, we will discuss many of the solutions. In the process of discussion, we should never forget that climate change is a multilateral issue. One thing is very clear. We need to work together on these issues. We should form a joint force among Europe, China and the United States and shelve their differences. We should also bear in mind that climate warming and biodiversity are closely linked, and environmental issues are a comprehensive issue.
I mean, environmental issues are interdisciplinary, cross generational, cross-border issues. At present, we have heard that many governments have issued long-term plans (to 2050-2060), and we have also learned about the important measures taken by enterprises and financial practitioners to deal with climate change. From the perspective of building a low-carbon society, these are encouraging. Unfortunately, we have not made enough necessary short-term decisions. I mean those short-term decisions that can achieve long-term goals. They only see the final goal in their eyes and may forget how to build the road to the goal.
Therefore, we should not only make clear our goals, but also take practical actions. In the international concerted efforts, we should take rapid and powerful measures, especially to implement various green trading and green recovery plans. Some countries are working out relevant plans to implement the Paris Agreement and realize green development, which are the common challenges we are facing. The three key words are: implementation, action and urgency. Let's remember these three key words and wish you fruitful results in the discussions of this grand meeting. Thank you!
