Chinese President Xi Jinping highlighted the significance of placing development at the center of the international agenda when some countries have politicized and marginalized the development issue, built "a small yard with high fences," imposed maximum sanctions and stoked divisions and confrontation at Friday's High-level Dialogue on Global Development, stressing China will take pragmatic steps to continue supporting the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including adding $1 billion to a Global Development and South-South Cooperation Fund.

It is important that we put development front and center on the international agenda, deliver on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and build political consensus to ensure everyone values development and all countries pursue cooperation together, Xi said while chairing the High-level Dialogue on Global Development in Beijing via video link on Friday evening.
