The United Nations has been a strong and trusted development partner of China for 40 years. It has had the privilege to witness the profound economic and social transformation that has taken place in China since the introduction of reforms.
Taking into consideration the rapidly evolving development context in China, the role of the United Nations in China (UN China) has shifted from a traditional donor to a partner providing technical expertise and supporting the Government of China in its global engagement, incl. the Belt and Road Initiative, South-South Cooperation endeavors, and other collaboration among member states.
UN China values its engagement with national stakeholders, including Government, bilateral and multilateral donors, non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations and the private sector. As such, UN China seeks to consistently build upon its position as a key partner, most notably by creating and reinforcing partnerships for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in line with national development priorities.
By continuing to deliver tangible results in support of the national development agenda of the Government and in line with internationally agreed norms and of a more prosperous, sustainable and equitable world.
