In 2020, the UN will celebrate its 75th anniversary and there are plans to carry out a reform of the organisation, which are designed to restore its former effectiveness and make it worthy of the “parliament of humanity” title. On the eve of the opening of the regular UN General Assembly session on September 17 this year, Ecuadorian statesperson Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, President of the United Nations General Assembly for the 73rd Session, visited the Valdai Discussion Club and presented her vision for the future of the UN and its unchanging mission in the changing modern world.
