Senior UN official has stressed that economic development, social progress and environmental protection should be the three basic principles on a draft of sustainable development which UN members have discussed lately. 

UN Under-Secretary-General Wu Hongbo said the draft blueprint for sustainable development over the next 15 years marks the first-ever global consensus that only focusing on GDP growth while ignoring environment protection or social justice is not the right path for development.
