On July 12, 2021, Assistant Foreign Minister Wu Jianghao attended and addressed the opening ceremony of Eco Forum Global Guiyang 2021.

Wu Jianghao expressed, the Chinese government attaches great importance to the development of an ecological civilization. China will fully implement Xi Jinping Thought on Ecological Civilization, realize and practice the understanding that lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets, and devote itself to building a community of life for man and nature. China acts as an important participant, contributor, and leader in the development of global ecological civilization.

Wu Jianghao emphasized, as profound changes unseen in a century are intertwined with the COVID-19 pandemic, it remains a long and arduous journey to address climate change, improve global environmental governance, promote global ecological progress, and build a community with a shared future for mankind. We should follow the laws of ecosystem, integrate development and conservation, and coordinate utilization and restoration. We should safeguard true multilateralism, work on the basis of international law, follow the principle of equity and justice, focus on effective actions, and strive for a fair and reasonable system of global environmental governance featuring win-win cooperation. We should adhere to green, low-carbon and sustainable growth, and upgrade economic, energy and industrial structures. We should deepen practical cooperation, and jointly address climate change. We need to uphold the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and fully implement the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Paris Agreement.

This Forum is co-hosted by Guizhou Provincial Government, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Natural Resources, and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and themed with "Green and Low-carbon Development - Fostering a Community of Life for Man and Nature". Around 500 persons, including relevant countries' incumbent and former government officials, and diplomatic envoys to China as well as representatives from industrial and commercial enterprises and think tanks, attended the meeting either online or offline.
