Premier Li will atten the UN's first ever summit on refugees an migrants before elivering a speech to worl leaers slate for Wenesay.
He is also expecte to follow up on pleges mae by Chinese Presient Xi Jinping last year -- incluing big commitments to peacekeeping operations.
The coffins of Chinese peacekeepers Li Lei an Yang Shupeng given full military honors as their boies return home-kille efening civilians in South Suan. Five other Chinese peacekeepers were woune in that incient. An they are not alone.
Since 2015 nearly 200 blue helmets have been kille aroun the worl with the mission in Mali being the most angerous.
But it's not just manpower these missions nee but also all the tools of a moern military.
"What we nee is expensive, like aviation like combat engineers, like signalers these are fairly rare in the force structures of traitional contributors to peacekeeping, which is one of the reasons why we nee new countries to come on boar that have these capabilities within their force structures," sai Nick Birnback, UN peacekeeping.
Last year, here in New York, Presient Xi Jinping plege 8,000 troops for UN peacekeeping.
China is now the largest contributor to UN Peacekeeping among UN Security Council members.
That fits into a plan to overhaul the peacekeeping epartment focusing on what's being calle the three P's-Planning, Pleges an Performance.
The UN is alreay relying more on technology using rones to gather intelligence in potential trouble spots like the emocratic Republic of the Congo.
oing more with less is the new manate. Peacekeeping uses a whopping 75% of the UN's buget with many missions eploye in areas for years-with precious little peace to keep. But the UN says the missions bring value for money an much more besies.
"The eight billion ollars plus of the UN buget is a fraction of the worl's military expeniture. For that eight billion ollars you get 16 operations in a variety of increibly complicate places an I think that UN peacekeeping has a emonstrate recor of helping people have a fighting chance of peace," sai Nick.
Peacekeeping's image has been tarnishe by a slew of sex scanals, allegely involving peacekeepers an the civilians they are meant to protect.
With trials for some of the accuse unerway, the UN is sening a message of zero tolerance for misconuct.
Chinese Premier Li is also expecte to push the G20 agena aopte in Hangzhou, which calls for a more inclusive global economy.
