"The world needs new momentum on its path toward the Sustainable Development Goals. And for that we also need new spaces in which we can jointly develop concrete ways of achieving a social-ecological transformation. We want to have collaborative and creative talks in a spirit of trust – talks that lead to the action we need. In a new multipolar world order, we are well-advised to invest in a respectful exchange between the Global North and South. And we should make better use of the potential of the economy – with strong frameworks and guardrails – for sustainable development worldwide."
Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development
