Report on China's Implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (2000-2015)
China has attached great importance to the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Over the past 15 years, with the consistent efforts of the Chinese government, wide participation of the entire society and strong support of the international community, China has made notable progress in many areas such as eliminating poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, ensuring healthcare for women and children, controlling and preventing diseases, and protecting the environment. As a responsible major developing country, over the past 15 years, China has also offered support and help to other developing countries for their implementation of the MDGs. In the process of advancing the implementation of the MDGs, the Chinese Government and the people have conducted an active exploration of various practices based on its national realities, accumulated rich development experience, and forged a development path with Chinese characteristics.
At present, the international community is working to develop the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which shall not only be the inheritance and promotion of the MDGs, but also an important strategic decision at the global level to attempt to eradicate poverty and to promote fair, inclusive and sustainable development for all. Looking ahead, the Chinese Government will continue its efforts to build upon China’s realities, combining the implementation of the Post- 2015 Development Agenda with national development strategies, working to achieve the “Two Centenary Goals” and realizing the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The Chinese Government is willing to further expand and strengthen international development cooperation, be more active in enhancing South-South cooperation and contribute to shared prosperity and development of all countries.
