Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang met Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, the president-elect of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly, in Shanghai on Saturday.
Li congratulated Muhammad-Bande on his election as the president of the 74th session of the UNGA, and introduced the economic and social development of Shanghai.
As the largest economic center of China, Shanghai is accelerating the construction of “five centers” and a metropolis of global influence with Chinese characteristics, Li said.
Shanghai is willing to strengthen cooperation and exchanges with the UN and other international organizations to make contributions towards building a community of human destiny, he added.
China has made great achievements on poverty alleviation and accumulated rich development experience. Shanghai is a metropolis with much experience in urban planning, social governance and youth development, Muhammad-Bande said.
“We are willing to actively promote mutual cooperation, better exchanges, mutual learning, and push forward joint development in the future,” Muhammad-Bande added.
