Antonio Guterres

United Nations Secretary-General

China-led Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) can be a very important instrument to meet the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Multilateralism is the solution to global problems. And China has been a strong pillar of multilateralism.

When we look at BRI, we see a very important contribution to this solidarity in addressing global problems with international cooperation, where China plays a very central role. So I'm very happy to have the chance to participate in this Belt and Road summit.
