Pakistan calls for addressing multiple economic challenges facing developing countries


At the United Nations, Pakistan has called for addressing the challenges of recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic, financing Sustainable Development Goals, fighting poverty, and combating the impacts of climate change that have adversely impacted the poorest nations.
This was suggested by Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Munir Akram, while speaking at a debate on behalf of Group of 77 and China, at the UN General Assembly’s Economic and Financial Committee.
He said the recent geopolitical tensions and debilitating effects of climate change, which are being felt strongly by Pakistan in the wake of recent unprecedented floods, have heightened vulnerabilities of countries and people around the globe.
