Premier Li has said China has submitted plans to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In his speech during the General Debate, Li said many of today's problems can't be solved without development.

Li said, "China is among the first countries to submit its own plan to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The foundation of sustainable development is development itself. Sustainability has no meaning without development."

"Many problems around the world are caused by the lack of development, including poverty, the refugee crisis, wars and conflicts, as well as terrorism. We need to find the root causes of these problems and solve them through development."

"China and the United States don't just have stable political ties, but also enjoy very close business cooperation. I was told that every second of every day, a Chinese is buying an iPhone product. And maybe when that Chinese customer is buying this iPhone, he is not aware that the real 'Big Apple' is New York City!"
