(People's Daily Online)

09:32, June 09, 2012

The 12th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Summit took place in Beijing from June 6 to June 7, and has attracted much attention as this year marks the beginning of the second decade for the development of the SCO. The organization is expected to further identify its development direction for the next decade at the summit.

Among the more than 10 major documents to be signed or adopted at the summit, the two most important ones are the Declaration on Building a Region with Lasting Peace and Common Prosperity and the Strategic Plan for the Medium-Term Development of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

The two documents will further demonstrate the SCO’s determined will to promote regional security and development on the basis of good neighborliness, and offer detailed guidelines on member states’ cooperation in economic, security, cultural, and other fields as well as on the development of the organization itself.

The two documents show the SCO member states’ strong determination to strengthen multilateral cooperation in the future, indicating a higher starting point and stronger impetus for the development of the organization in its second decade.
