Speech by Mr. Siddharth Chatterjee at University Sustainable Development Forum



On 15th April, China's Tsinghua University hosted the University Sustainable Development Forum and launched its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Report on Thursday night in Beijing. 


“The talent pool we have in this university is simply remarkable,” he said, recalling his recent visit to Tsinghua.   

 

He emphasized the central role of universities like Tsinghua in addressing global challenges and realizing the SDGs.  

 

Chatterjee praised China for making significant gains in realizing the SDGs. 

 

“As we march and race towards the Sustainable Development Goals, all 17 goals, we must keep in mind, it is our human spirit, our human compassion, our human endurance, our human knowledge and our spirit of multilateralism which will lead to the implementation of the SDGs….The World Bank is already projecting that by the end of 2021 about 150 million people will fall back into poverty (due to the pandemic). Yet here is a country(China) where I am standing in, is not only REACHING the SDG 1 (of no poverty) but has actually REACHED it and is now moving towards rural revitalization to make sure no one is left behind,” he said.     

 

He emphasized that as the world moves towards 2030, China’s role in the field of multilateralism would be crucial in achieving the SDGs globally.
