Over the past 50 years, China has greatly enhanced its cooperation with the United Nations and made notable achievements.

"This way, we will contribute more to global development while pursuing our own development," he said.

China will not change course in its pursuit of a new system of open economy of higher standards, and China will not waver in its resolve to promote trade and investment liberalization and facilitation, Xi said.

China is always a builder of world peace, contributor to global development, defender of the international order and provider of public goods, Xi said in his statement delivered via video at the general debate of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly.

"We must improve global governance and practice true multilateralism," Xi said.

"In the world, there is only one international system, i.e. the international system with the United Nations at its core. There is only one international order, i.e. the international order underpinned by international law. There is only one set of rules, i.e. the basic norms governing international relations underpinned by the purposes and principles of the UN Charter," he added.

China is the largest developing country in the world, a country that is committed to peaceful, open, cooperative and common development, Xi said while addressing the general debate of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly via video.

"We will never seek hegemony, expansion, or sphere of influence. We have no intention to fight either a Cold War or a hot war with any country," Xi said.

China firmly upholds the UN-centered international system and the international order underpinned by international law, he said.

"Global governance should be based on the principle of extensive consultation, joint cooperation and shared benefits so as to ensure that all countries enjoy equal rights and opportunities and follow the same rules," he said.

China is a founding member of the United Nations and the first country to put its signature on the UN Charter, Xi said in his speech at the United Nations Office at Geneva.

China's support for multilateralism will increase as the country continues to develop itself, Xi said.

"China is ready to work with all the other UN member states as well as international organizations and agencies to advance the great cause of building a community of shared future for mankind," Xi said.

Sept. 28, 2015

Addressing the general debate of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, Xi said China will continue to contribute to global development.

"We are ready to share our development experience and opportunities with other countries and welcome them to board China's express train of development so that all of us will achieve common development," Xi said.

"China will continue to stand together with other developing countries. We firmly support greater representation and say of developing countries, especially African countries, in the international governance system," Xi said.

"China's vote in the United Nations will always belong to the developing countries," he said.

The EBRD will provide a €25 million loan to the TBC Bank in Georgia for on-lending to local firms. At least 70 per cent of this funding aims to help micro-, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Georgia become greener and more competitive.

The EU will complement the loan with grants and free technical assistance for those who borrow, under its EU4Business initiative.

The package will allow companies to upgrade their products and services and bring them in line with EU standards. It will also modernise their production and assist them to operate more successfully in foreign markets.

The support is being extended under the EU4Business-EBRD Credit Line, a joint financing instrument available in Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, which aims to make local firms greener and more competitive. Since the launch of the programme in 2016, 170 Georgian companies have benefited from the scheme.
