Since September 2000, the Government of China has remained steadfast in its pledge to support the Millennium Development Goals. Over the course of the last 13 years, China has demonstrated that the right policies and actions, backed by financial resources and strong political commitment, can yield impressive results. Now, with only two years remaining in the countdown, China has achieved nearly half of the MDGs targets.
The MDGs are integrated into China's development planning, and since the last progress report in 2010, China has met three additional targets. These include targets under the goals to Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases and to Ensure Envrionment Sustainability. In addition, China's growing contribution to developing countries through South-South Cooperation is helping them reach the MDGs, as well as adding to the global partnership for development highlighted by the eighth MDGs.
