Declaring the opening of the world’s largest international horticultural exhibition in Beijing on Sunday, President Xi Jinping expressed his hope that the green development concept embodied by the expo park would be spread to “every corner of the world.”
As China has been speeding up ecological civilization development, people will live in a better environment with blue sky, green mountains and clear water.
We should pursue harmony between man and nature. We should maintain the overall balance of Earth’s ecology so that the starry sky, lush mountains and floral fragrance will be retained for our future generations who enjoy material prosperity at the same time.
We should pursue the prosperity based on green development. Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets. Improving ecological environment is increasing productivity.
We should foster a passion for nature-caring lifestyle. We should embrace simple, moderate, green and low-carbon ways of life, and reject extravagance and waste of resources.
We should pursue a scientific spirit in ecological governance. Ecological governance should follow the law of nature and make scientific planning, while taking into consideration local conditions and a holistic approach to create a diversified ecological system of co-existence.
We should join hands to tackle environmental challenges. Only with concerted efforts can we effectively deal with global environmental issues such as climate change, marine pollution and biological protection, and achieve the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
