Wang said that developing agriculture, promoting poverty reduction and achieving "zero hunger" are important goals of the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization has made active efforts to this end over the years. Agricultural assistance is an important part of China's foreign aid. China is willing to strengthen communication and exchanges with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, give full play to their respective advantages, deepen cooperation, help developing countries to achieve agricultural growth, tackle food crises, and share China's experience in agricultural development and poverty alleviation.

The head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization said that China's agricultural development and poverty reduction have made great achievements, and China's successful experience is a significant reference for other developing countries. China’s long-term and outstanding contributions to the eradication of hunger, poverty reduction and sustainable development in the world are highly appreciated by the international community. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization looks forward to establishing a closer partnership with China, strengthening the two sides’ policy coordination and pragmatic cooperation, forming a synergy to help developing countries achieve sustainable agricultural development, and striving to achieve the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
