President Truong Tan Sang recently attended the United Nations Summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda opened at the UN Headquarters in New York on September 25 (New York time), during which he affirmed Vietnam’s strong commitment to successfully implementing sustainable development goals (SDGs).
After the opening ceremony, the summit, which drew representatives from 193 UN member countries, including over 160 heads of State and Government, adopted the document ‘Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’, which includes 17 goals and 169 targets.
In his statement, the Vietnamese State leader highlighted key challenges threatening peace, security and sustainable development, especially hunger and poverty, epidemics, social injustice, the depletion of natural resources, environment degradation, climate change, conflicts and crises.
He stressed that the 2030 Agenda presents a new strategic vision that reflects the aspiration of humanity to live in a world of peace and prosperity, adding that it creates a framework and sets the direction for all nations to collectively respond to common challenges, in the three pillars of the economy, society and the environment.
Vietnam commits to making every effort to ensure its successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda, the President affirmed.
He also highlighted the country’s key message, stating that maintaining peace and security on the basis of respect for international law is a precondition for the successful implementation of the SDGs; successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda requires strong political will as well as full and effective mobilisation of domestic resources; it is imperative to strengthening the global partnership for sustainable development.
The President spoke of Vietnam’s efforts to realise the National Strategy on Sustainable Development for 2011-2020, which focuses on accelerating economic restructuring, guaranteeing social equality, preserving natural resources, protecting the environment and responding to climate change.
Vietnam and other ASEAN member nations are working together to build an ASEAN Community by the years end, the Vietnamese leader said, adding that ASEAN and its partners are engaged in common efforts to maintain and consolidate peace and security in the region.
He reiterated Vietnam’s consistent policy to resolve disputes in the East Sea using peaceful measures on the basis of respect for international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea as well as the effective and full implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC) and an early conclusion of the Code of Conduct (COC).
In conclusion, he expressed his hope that the 2030 Agenda would be implemented effectively for the interest of all people in the world, for a safer and better life for the children of today and tomorrow. Vietnam will make positive and responsible contributions to the process, he affirmed.

the UN chief should further give support to the peaceful settlement of disputes based on international law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Vietnam Sea (DOC), and to efforts to building a code of conduct (COC) in the sea area.
