China, Africa join at UN to highlight importance of development for human rights improvement
July 10,2019   By:Xinhua
GENEVA, July 10, 2019 -- China and Africa joined together Tuesday to discuss the Contribution of Development to the Enjoyment of all Human Rights at the European headquarters of the United Nations here.
 
"Development is an eternal quest of human society; it represents the basis of addressing all issues and holds the ultimate answer to them," China's Permanent Representative to the UN Office at Geneva (UNOG), Chen Xu, said in his opening remarks.
 
He was speaking at a side-event during the current 41st session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), co-sponsored by UNOG's African Group and the Permanent Mission of China.
 
Chen noted that while development benefits from economic growth and new technology, it remains globally "unbalanced, uncoordinated, and inadequate".
 
The international community needs to think hard about how to make progress together and to bring in more people to share development to promote and protect human rights, said Chen.
