STOCKHOLM, April 25 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Wednesday China was committed to sustainable development and had made it a national development strategy.

Speaking to a sustainable development forum here, Wen recalled that, 40 years ago, Stockholm hosted the United Nations Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment, a meeting that marked the beginning of general public awareness of the importance of environmental protection, and opened a new era for sustainable development.

Over the past 40 years, China had attended all significant meetings on sustainable development, Wen said. It had also taken resource conservation and environment protection as a basic national policy and raised it to the level of a national development strategy.

"Since the start of the new century, we have taken the outlook on scientific development as an important guiding principle in economic and social development," Wen told the forum, which was attended by Swedish leaders and senior officials from more than 70 countries.
