What impressed me most is that President Xi highlighted the importance of sustainable d
evelopment. The hosting of the Horticultural Expo is the best chance to raise people’s attention to the conce
pt of sustainability, both in China and around the world.President Xi outlined his commitment to open and gre
en development as well as underlined China’s dedication to conserving the ecosystem now and for generations to come.
Xi’s call for countries to work together for the common goal o
f improving the global ecosystem aligns well with the Paris Agreement. This is an excellent foll
ow-on from the commitment outlined in the communique from the Belt and Road Forum.
In this communique, to which the UAE is a signatory, countries ag
reed that cooperation will be open and clean, with green development promoted.
The expo attracted widespread global participation, and I think everybody will recog
nize China’s vision in green development and its resolve to build a green future.
