Cuba to participate in high-level political forum on sustainable development

Cuba will participate in the UN high-level political forum on sustainable development on Wednesday, July 15. Rodrigo Malmierca, Cuban minister of foreign trade and foreign investment, posted on Twitter Thursday.

Cuba will speak from July 7-16 on behalf of Latin America and the Caribbean as pro-tempore chair of the regional forum, and will review global progress towards achieving the sustainable development goals.

Given the emergency, government representatives discuss at the online meeting how to address some of the world's greatest challenges, including poverty, climate change, peace and security, and gender equality.

Countries will present their updated plans for achieving the 17 sustainable development goals, and several United Nations intergovernmental bodies, as well as other specialized agencies, will contribute to the discussions.
