Ensuring that voices from the Chinese language speaking world are heard is critical in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in this Decade of Action and to leave no one behind, said Siddharth Chatterjee, the United Nations resident coordinator in China.

Chatterjee made the remarks in a pre-recorded video in honor of UN Chinese Language Day, which falls on April 20 this year.

The date was selected to coincide with Grain Rain, the sixth of 24 solar terms on the Chinese lunar calendar. On this particular day, Chinese people pay tribute to Cang Jie, a mythical figure from ancient China who is said to have invented Chinese characters thousands of years ago.
