Excellencies, Distinguished delegates,
I am pleased to join you for the launch of the report on Financing Sustainable Development in Egypt.
The world remains mired in the COVID-19 and climate crises, with persistent conflicts threatening our ability to deliver a better future for people and planet.
For the Arab region, although 2021 saw signs of economic recovery, it remains uneven between and within countries.
To reverse course, we must act now to ensure all countries can invest in people and resilience.
