  Zhang said that, as the world's largest developing country, China attaches high importance to environment and development issues and incorporates resource conservation and environmental protection as a basic national policy. China adhered to protecting the environment in the process of development and developing in the process of environmental protection, and has continuously made new progress. In the future, China will consolidate the philosophy that protecting and improving the ecological environment is protecting and improving the productive forces, and more consciously promote green development, circular development, and low-carbon development and incorporate ecological progress into the efforts to realize modernization and build a beautiful China.

These actions are of high significance for promoting the harmonious development of man and nature and creating a new pattern for modernization.

As the new CCICED Chairperson, he expressed the hope to work with CCICED council members to make new contributions to the sustainable development of mankind through this constructive communication platform for international cooperation and mutual sharing.
