According to Secretary-General of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Rashid Alimov, the agenda of the SCO for 2018 and the near future is determined by tasks involved in implementing the SCO Development Strategy 2025, which has set forth all goals in this respect.
“We must not only preserve but also step up the existing dynamics in all the established areas of SCO activity and those of fundamental importance to the organization. These include efforts to ensure security and counter such threats and challenges as terrorism, separatism and extremism, and to comprehensively develop SCO activities in the economic, cultural and humanitarian spheres. Enhancement of the SCO's authority and influence in Eurasia and the international arena largely depends on success along these lines”, R. Alimov said.
