Second General Assembly of 21st-Century Maritime Cooperation Committee

In April 2017, in order to actively respond to China’s Belt and Road Initiative and strengthen exchanges and cooperation with countries and regions in the Asia-Pacific region in the field of maritime cooperation, Fuzhou Municipal People’s Government and the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC) set up the 21st-Century Maritime Cooperation Committee within the framework of UCLG ASPAC. Since its establishment, 62 cities and organizations from 27 countries on 5 continents have joined the Committee. In accordance with the Charter of the Committee, its General Assembly shall be convened every three years to discuss the formulation and revisions of the Charter, to review and approve the work reports and plans of the Committee, to set specific themes to discuss in terms of the key policy issues related to maritime cooperation, to take the relevant policy research reports and opinions from the members and to form the policy suggestions to the member cities and local governments.

Since the First General Assembly was held in 2018, the Second General Assembly shall be organized in 2021 by the Committee, CPAFFC and Fuzhou Municipal People’s Government. The agenda includes: reviewing the Committee’s progress over the past three years and introducing its future work plans; discussing on the revision of the Charter; electing new Presidents and Co-Presidents of the Committee for 2021-2023; issuing certificates of appointments to new presidency and advisers; and issuing trophies for new members who joined the Committee in the past three years. We would like to invite the members of the Committee, UCLG APAC and Metropolis to attend and give us their valuable suggestions on the development of the Committee
