Former Belgian Ambassador to China Patrick Nijs Will Attend the Side Event of the CBCGDF 2022 UN Ocean Conference 

Recently, Mr. Patrick Nijs, former Belgian ambassador to China, has accepted the invitation of participating in the 2022 United Nations Ocean Conference Virtual Side Event to be held on Jun.30 (Beijing Time) by China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF), and will make keynote remarks by video. 

As a senior diplomat, Mr. Patrick Nijs worked in Osaka, Shanghai and Hong Kong as the head of the Belgian diplomatic mission. While Mr. Patrick Nijs was the Belgian Ambassador to China, he chose to retire early and stay in China, his beloved and dynamic land, to serve social groups from all over the world. As a former Director of the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he is good at handling international affairs in a pragmatic way, caring for people and helping them travel safely. Throughout his diplomatic career, Ambassador Patrick Nijs has been a staunch promoter of economics and public diplomacy. Over the course of his career, he has driven public-private partnerships and put them into practice. Ambassador Patrick Nijs loves the idea of fusion. He always wanted to combine his university experience as a social psychologist and later diplomacy to promote interdependence and cooperation in many areas of the international community.

The Ocean Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, comes at a critical time as the world is seeking to address many of the deep-rooted problems of our societies laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic and which will require major structural transformations and common shared solutions that are anchored in the SDGs. To mobilize action, the Conference will seek to propel much needed science-based innovative solutions aimed at starting a new chapter of global ocean action.

During the 2022 UN Ocean Conference, CBCGDF and ACTAsia will co-host a side event themed on “Marine Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Development – Promoting SDGs 4, 7, 13, 14 and 15”. 

Topics will focus on conservation and sustainable development of marine biodiversity from global to local, bio-friendly clean energy and marine education. Speakers will discuss marine animal conservation issues from different countries and disciplines.

The conference will be broadcast live simultaneously, the live link:
