IFF 2021 Opens with Green Initiatives for a More Sustainable Future


BEIJING, May 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — International Finance Forum (IFF) starts its two-day 2021 Spring Meetings today. Entitled Global Governance and Development in the Post-Pandemic Era, the meeting aims to provide a platform for in-depth discussions on international cooperation and global governance, while promoting development and collaborations in low-carbon initiatives, sustainable finance, climate change, public health issues, as well as Belt and Road Initiatives (BRI). Global audiences can attend the virtual meetings here.

“We have seen progress with our fight against the pandemic, however, we still face a lost decade for development and grave setbacks to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres during his opening remarks.

“Reversing this trajectory requires a more concerted global and multilateral response on several fronts, which includes urgent actions to close the global vaccine gap, more support for developing countries that are on the brink of a debt crisis, and resilient recovery from the pandemic and climate change crisis,” Guterres added.

“The global recovery is underway—but the paths and pace are diverging dangerously…We face high uncertainty until this pandemic truly ends,” said IMF President Kristalina Georgievain in her speech. “Policymakers must take the right actions now by giving everyone a fair shot at the vaccine, recovery, and future.”

She believes China has played an important role in the G20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative and the Common Framework for orderly debt restructuring. The country has also proved the action by supporting the IMF's concessional lending facilities. China is showing efforts on a scale not seen before to accelerate vaccination, while delivering fair vaccine supply to other countries.

“Public health is a global public good,” noted Jose Manuel Barroso, IFF Co-chairman and Chair of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization in his speech. “We have to face it also at global level and if possible, with the true sincere spirit of cooperation and solidarity.”

Nearly 500 leaders from the worlds of governance, finance, business and academia participate the meeting.
