The United Nations System in China, are committed to fostering sustainable and rights-based development to empower women, men and children, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, to lead better lives.

UN will draw on global experience to assist China in developing its own solutions to the country's development challenges, and in its growing engagement with the international community.

UN will be guided in this by China's national Xiaokang vision of balanced, equitable and culture-based development for a harmonious society, drawing upon the Millennium Development Goals and the values and principles embodied in the UN Charter, the Millennium Declaration and other fundamental UN System instruments.

Building on the specific mandates of our organizations, UN will intensify their work together through joint programs, action and advocacy in order to maximize the impact of our assistance for the Government and people of China.
