G-77/China refers to the the grouping of China with the G-77 group of developing countries.
In a speech on the fortieth anniversary of the founding of the G-77, Ambassador Taous Feroukhi from Algeria, rhetorically asked "why G-77 and China?".
- "Although not a formal member of the G-77, China has been a supporter of the Group's positions and has maintained close relations with the Group. The association between the G-77 and China started in connection with the preparations for the UN Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio in June 1992. For the first time, the two sides jointly put forward a position paper in the name of G-77 and China. From then on, the form of cooperation and the working relationship between the G-77 and China has grown from strength to strength," he said.
