The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), founded at the dawn of the 21st century, has grown into one of the most influential international and regional organizations. Across 17 years, it has become an active factor supporting the security, stability and sustainable development of the current international system.

The SCO has built more than 30 meeting mechanisms at different levels and signed more than 100 documents for cooperation, laying a solid foundation for the organization to function effectively. SCO member states, with increasingly deepening partnership as friendly neighbors, have made joint efforts to preserve peace, security and stability and work together in politics, economics, culture and more areas.

The SCO is becoming a role model for a new type of international relations.
