The second session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution (INC-2), including in the marine environment, was held in Paris, France from May 29 to June 2, 2023. Governments around the world engaged in difficult discussions and negotiations on the development of this international multilateral agreement. The delegation of CBCGDF participated throughout the meeting, with Deputy Secretary General of CBCGDF being interviewed by China Global Television Network (CGTN) on “Vision and Action to Eliminate Plastic Pollution”.

The Deputy Secretary General of CBCGDF pointed out that the keyword for plastic pollution is "pollution", and our goal is not to eliminate the plastics, but to negotiate on its treatment and management measures, in order to issue globally binding legal documents in the coming years.


The negotiation process of INC-2 progressed slower than expected, which had a negative impact on the formation of an international treaty that is legally binding on all countries. The CBCGDF “Reduce & Pick-up Plastics” working group will continue to report on the outcomes of this conference.
