Ambassador Muhamad Noor said that, as the first forestry ministerial meeting in Asia, the conference will promote the development of forestry and the cooperation among countries in the Asian-Pacific region.

The meeting will be held from Sept. 6 to Sept. 8 and the theme will be sustainable growth, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said on Monday.

The ministers and other high-ranking officials will gather in Beijing to discuss how sustainable forestry development can boost economic and social development in the Asia-Pacific region, Jiang said.
