On January 30, 2018, the Council of National Coordinators (CNC) of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) met at the SCO Headquarters in Beijing under China's chairmanship.
SCO Secretary-General Rashid Alimov opened the meeting with a welcome speech.
The meeting's agenda includes over 30 items related to upcoming events under China's SCO chairmanship. During the meeting the National Coordinators plan to discuss the practical preparations and procedures of this year's key political event — the 18th session of the SCO Heads of State Council scheduled for June in Qingdao (Shandong Province, China) and other aspects of the SCO's current activities.
As one of the SCO's key bodies, the CNC coordinates its activities and cooperation of the relevant ministries and departments of the SCO member-countries.
