In September 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit, and endorsed Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development alongside leaders of other UN member states.

Guided by the new vision for innovation-driven, coordinated, green, open, and shared development, China has been among the first to formulate a national plan for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and vigorously advanced the work across the board, integrating it with China’s own medium- to long-term development strategies, such as the 13th Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development.

China has actively engaged in international development cooperation, and vigorously promoted synergy between the Belt and Road Initiative and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, injecting fresh vitality to the cause of global development.

Ending poverty in all its forms everywhere is the Number 1 goal of the 2030 Agenda. China attaches great importance to poverty reduction, and has followed a philosophy of people-centered development and implemented the strategy of precise poverty alleviation. By the end of this year, China will have achieved the Sustainable Development Goal on eradicating extreme poverty.

China has compiled Eradication of Extreme Poverty: China's Practices, which shares China’s experience and solutions through specific and detailed case studies. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has compiled the 2020 Report of Big Earth Data in Support of the Sustainable Development Goals,  to provide supporting data for monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
