On September 2nd, the Forum on the 20th Anniversary of Juncao Assistance and Sustainable Development Cooperation was co-hosted in Beijing by China International Development Cooperation Agency and Fujian Provincial Government. This forum was attended by over 60 diplomatic envoys and resident representatives of international organizations, as well as over 150 Juncao Industry practitioners. On the very day, President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory letter to the forum. State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Fujian Vice Governor Guo Ningning attended and addressed the forum. Lan Siren, President of FAFU, and leaders from relevant ministries and commissions, as well as departments of Fujian Provincial Government were also present at the forum.

In his address, Wang Yi said that Juncao technology is not only a successful practice in promoting poverty alleviation in China, but also an important contribution from China to global sustainable development. When working in Fujian some 20 years ago, President Xi personally pushed for the implementation of Juncao Technology Assistance Project in Papua New Guinea. Over the last two decades, this technology has taken root in more than 100 countries, creating hundreds of thousands of green jobs for local women and youngsters. Modest yet effective and efficient, Juncao technology has played a significant role in improving people’s livelihood and creating economic and social benefits. Mr. Wang said that international cooperation on Juncao technology is a mirror that reflects China’s commitment to enhancing South-South cooperation and attaining common development and prosperity with developing countries. With the advantages of “strong adaptability and high practicability; low cost and quick yield returns; windbreak, sand-fixation and soil improvement”, Juncao will become a “grass of happiness” and “grass of prosperity” for more people in developing countries under the mutual cooperation between China and those participating countries. President Xi Jinping pointed out that a good development is sustainable and for all. “China will continue to foster international cooperation on resistance to disease, to strengthen our international development cooperation, and to undertake international obligations,” he continued, “and take concrete actions to practice commitment and responsibility and to provide more developing countries with more sustainable development. By doing so, we can build a closer community with a shared future for mankind.”

Apart from Chinese authorities, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also sent a congratulatory message to the forum. And more congratulatory messages via video links are from Prime Minister James Marape of Papua New Guinea, President Faustin-Archange Touadéra of the Central African Republic, Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, Secretary-general Henry Puna of Pacific Islands Forum and Premier Sihle Zikalala of KwaZulu-Natal, Fujian’s sister province in South Africa.

“We are now implementing the spirit of Xi’s speeches delivered in his inspection tour to Fujian”, said Guo Ningning, Vice Governor of Fujian, “and promote high-level opening-up and high-quality development based on the new development stage, philosophy, service, and paradigm”, she added. “Following President Xi’ congratulatory message, Fujian will continue to strengthen international Juncao cooperation, promote the development of Juncao industry, and make benefits of cooperation shared by more people around the world by way of building a Juncao bridge of friendship.”, the Vice Governor addressed in her speech.

Professor Lin Zhanxi, inventor of Juncao Technology and chief scientist from China National Engineering Research Center of Juncao Technology, FAFU, was also invited to introduce the latest development in Juncao Technology.
