Human Rights Day is observed every year on the 10th of December. It commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. China supports sharing its philosophy and experience in the interest of strengthening global human rights.

 China's Human Development Index in 2014 ranked 90th among 188 countries, according to the "China National Human Development Report 2016" released by the United Nations. Through over 30 years of reform and opening up, China has lifted 700 million people out of poverty, which accounts for more than 70 percent of the global reduction in poverty.

On the judicial front, China has taken strides to better protect civil and political rights by abolishing re-education through labour. Other current reforms aim to produce a more transparent and professional justice system.
