The future world is a digital world。
Promoting digital transformation is a great action of the United Nations for the benefit of all people in all countries and regions of the world。Global digital development can only develop healthily under the guidance and leadership of the United Nations。
It is of great global value to hold digital transformation with all countries in the world to promote national and regional development and accelerate the realization of sustainable development goals。
I call on large developing countries and developed countries to be open and transparent in digital resources, so that all people in the world can enjoy the dividends brought by the development of digital technology and contribute financially to global poverty reduction.。
