Agency News

United Nations, Jun 1: Wrapping up a key annual conference representing the more than 4 billion citizens of the Asia-Pacific region, the head of the UN Economic and Social Commission said that nine agreed resolutions provided a solid foundation for reaching the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Addressing the closing ceremony, ESCAP Executive Secretary of ESCAP Armida Alis-jahbana said the decisions were “firmly anchored in the 2030 Agenda and provide solid foundations on which to build upon.”

She said that putting resolutions into practice was “essential to achieving a transformed and resilient society in Asia and the Pacific.” “I hope this will be a first step towards more systematically identifying common priorities,” she said. (UNI)
