Armando Emilio Guebuza: Differentiated Roles in A Better Future

 

Armando Emilio Guebuza, President of Mozambique

 

Abstract: We wish to play our differentiated part in a better future, a better future with blue skies, lucid water, fresh air, and clean soil with biodiversity, which is a cornerstone of sustainable development and a better future for people all over the world.

 

First, I would like to thank once again President Xi Jinping for inviting the delegation of Mozambique to visit China, a great country. On the first day of the visit, I had a meeting with President Xi during which both sides decided to commit themselves to further consolidating and enriching our friendly fully reflected in the bilateral meeting in Zhejiang.

 

Today we are here in Hangzhou to reflect together on how to strengthen current investments to ensure a better planet for our children in the future generations. The theme of the Second Annual Conference of Taihu Cultural Forum (Hangzhou), "Strengthening International Cooperation and Building Ecological Civilization", embodies far-reaching importance.

 

This theme fully reflects China's responsibility as a great power. We are pleased to note that China has a lot of experience in building ecological civilization that is worth learning for other countries around the world, such as in economic transformation, road construction, inner-city forest, and park construction, etc. I believe that through the exchange of views, we can be more enlightened on how to better achieve sustainable development and better cope with climate change and global warming, which will bring catastrophic consequences.

 

Why did we choose this theme? You may have noticed that China's economy has been growing at a very fast pace in recent years, and I want to tell you that if you think this great country stops surprising humanity, then you are wrong. Because for the past 5,000 years, China has been a source of wonder to the world. China has achieved great progress in economic, political, and social aspects; it has promoted social harmony and development, realized the harmonious coexistence of 56 ethnic groups, and made positive contributions to the peace, security, and development of the international community.

 

Over the past 50 years, Mozambique has been supported and assisted by China in many ways, including from the day we achieved national liberty and independence of our people. At the same time, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and Africa are grateful to the Chinese people for their strong support in helping us to achieve freedom for our people and a better life for them. We also believe that we will always have Chinese assistance in the past, today, and in the future. So, I think the theme chosen for today, "Strengthening International Cooperation, Building Ecological Civilization," is highly relevant not only for Mozambique but also for SADC and the entire African continent.

 

We wish to play our differentiated part in a better future, a better future with blue skies, lucid water, fresh air, and clean soil with biodiversity, which is a cornerstone of sustainable development and a better future for people all over the world. Between Mozambique and China is extensive and varied cooperation, and we hope to further consolidate and enrich such bilateral cooperation, which is of strategic importance for us.
