The "Second China-Europe-South America Dialogue Meeting" has just concluded in Beijing. A total of 20 distinguished CSO (civil society organizations) delegates attended the meeting and discussed issues of common concern relating to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and sustainable development post-2015.

The Vice-President & Director General of United Association of China Zhang Xiao’an and Vice-Chairman & Executive Director of China Association for NGO Cooperation (CANGO) Huang Haoming received interviews from People’s Daily Online.

NGOs’ Internationalization

Chinese NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) have more exchanges with European NGOs, including dialogues and communications, but they exchange less with South American counterparts due to the long distance and language barrier, said Mr. Huang. However, South America has a quite developed NGO system, and the system plays a pivotal role in economic, social and environmental protection. Therefore, the talk enables Chinese NGOs to learn from international NGOs on how to talk to governments and citizens.

Such talk can benefit Chinese NGOs greatly and it also becomes a great opportunity to understand the world trend. Chinese NGOs have chosen many real cases, through which the foreign counterparts can actually understand China’s economic development, social progress, and seek common ground.

The core of the conference

Economic development, social progress and sustainable development are the three main directions of the development for the world. How to balance these three goals is the core issue of this talk, which is involved in Millennium Development Goals.

Zhang pointed out China had completed several targets for sustainable developments ahead of the plan, for example, it has halved the proportion of people whose income is less than $1 a day between 1990 and 2015. At the same time, Chinese government will also incorporate these targets into national development goals, using the big picture to stimulate the inner part, which not only promotes domestic development, but also acts as the basis of national strategies.
