Photos: UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake’s visit to China

UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake’s visit to China, timed with this year’s celebration of the 25th Anniversary on the Rights of the Child, was an opportunity to reaffirm UNICEF’s long standing partnership with the Government and people of China.

The visit included meetings with senior Government officials, as well as to schools in Yunnan Province to understand the dramatic progress the country has made for its 279 million children, which make up 15 percent of the world’s child population.

Mr. Lake saw the impact of the Government working with UNICEF’s support, to reach children in remote, poor and ethnic minority areas.
