According to the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, who will deliver a speech there, this is an opportunity to move towards a more effective multilateralism that “brings together existing institutional capacities, overcoming fragmentation to ensure that everyone works together towards a common goal”.
Among the topics to be discussed will be the actions and investments needed to support an inclusive and people-centered recovery from the crisis in all countries.
Participants will value the increase in decent jobs and inclusive economic growth, universal social protection, care for workers, business sustainability and a just transition to a carbon-neutral global economy.
