ISLAMABAD: During the ongoing 75th UN General Assembly session, Prime Minister Imran Khan will address a key UN summit organised to discuss the global response to development financing during the coronavirus pandemic.

This high-level event, “Financing for Development”, is convened by the UN secretary-general and the prime ministers of Canada and Jamaica and will be held virtually.

The event aims to articulate a coordinated and comprehensive multilateral response to the urgent financing for development crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Besides, the forum will review the global financial architecture to deliver the global standards and align with the SDGs, and strengthen the resilience and sustainability of countries over the medium to long term.

Heads of state and government are expected to adopt an ambitious menu of policy options for countries to recover in the short term and mobilize the financial resources to achieve the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
