Global Ecological Conference ends

Story by Effort Magoso

THE Global Ecological Conference 2023 concluded in Guijang, China this Saturday, with a call for growth and International infrastructure development that prioritises environmental protection.

Experts in China cited the best practices evident in the Guizhou province of China where dazzling projects and super infrastructure have been constructed without harming the environment, but maintaining the natural state of the lush mountains and lucid waters.

In his remarks at the opening and closing ceremony of the Eco Forum Global, Vice Premier of the State Council, China and a member of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, Honourable Liu Guozhong emphasised the importance of harmony between humanity and nature, saying the case of Guizhou province is a useful pointer to ecological civilisation where great transformation has been achieved rapidly without harming the environment.

Guizhou went through rapid development drawing from People’s Republic of China President Xi Jinping’s thoughts on ecological civilisation.

The developments were achieved by putting in place ecological protection ordinances that protect the environment, distilling ideas into concepts and laws.

Deputy Secretary of the CPC Guizhou provincial committee and Governor of Guizhou provincial people’s government Mr Li Bingjun said the world must take solid steps to advance industrial ecology and green transformation of the traditional economy, strengthen pollution control and eco-restoration.

Young African leaders from 5 political parties namely ZANU PF from Zimbabwe, Chama Cha Mapinduzi from Tanzania, Swapo Party from Namibia, African National Congress and South African Communist Party of South Africa who are taking part in the Shaping the Shared Future workshop in China, attended the Eco Global Forum where many lessons were learnt on development and ecological advancement.

A delegate from Tanzania, Mohamed Ali Mohamed said Africa and Tanzania in particular have a lot to learn from China and are already implementing green-friendly projects such as the “build the future” which empowers young people to venture into agricultural projects.

ZANU PF Central Committee member Cde Kelvin Manyengawana, who took part at the Eco Global Forum and is also attending the SSF workshop, drew insightful similarities from China’s ecological civilisation and rural revitalisation programmes being pursued in Zimbabwe, where the government is pursuing inclusive development policies by spearheading projects in rural communities such as the Marula beneficiation plant in Mwenezi and the Chimanimani Cashel Valley where locals grow michagan pea beans for the commercial market.

The International Ecological Conference 2023 is a game changer in undertaking development that advances ecological civilisation as guided by Chinese President Xi Jinping’s thoughts on improved environmental governance.
