Secretary-General's closing remarks at High-Level Interactive Dialogue with Heads of Regional and Other Organizations [as prepared for delivery]

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Thank you for your reflections.

Our fruitful discussion today demonstrates our resolve to enhance our partnership.

It is undeniable that the longer-term effects of the pandemic, most notably its socio-economic fallout, will shape our work for years to come.

Entire regions that were making progress on eradicating poverty, narrowing inequality and building resilience have been set back by years. The world is further off track in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Secretary-General's video message to 48th Session of the UNIDO Industrial Development Board

We live in deeply testing times.

Climate change, poverty, unemployment, inequalities and the digital divide were among the global challenges that we faced well before the COVID-19 pandemic hit us.

They have all become more serious.

With less than 10 years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought on the most severe economic crisis in a century, threatening to erode decades of development progress.

G20 RIYADH SUMMIT | SESSION II: BUILDING AN INCLUSIVE, SUSTAINABLE, AND RESILIENT FUTURE 
 
Our greatest defense against COVID-19 is solidarity and cooperation. 
 
In this context, G20 leadership is vital in three key areas. 
 
First, halting the further spread of the pandemic. 
 
Yesterday, I was encouraged by the broad recognition that vaccines – as well as tests and treatments – must be global public goods, available and affordable for all.

It is a pleasure to greet publishers from around the world.

I am delighted that the International Publishers Association has become such a committed partner to help the United Nations and the world to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The SDG Book Club is a wonderful way to spread the word about the Global Goals. As a book-lover myself, I am very encouraged to see this club growing with new offshoots around the world.
