Ambassador Masud reiterated Bangladesh’s proposal for establishing a Ministerial Forum of Southern countries

Permanent Representative (PR) of Bangladesh to the UN Ambassador Masud Bin Momen has stressed the importance of the role of southern countries in the decision-making process of international economy.

He was speaking at an event to observe the United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation -- 41st Anniversary of the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action -- at the UN Headquarters (UNHQ) on Thursday.

The ambassador said there must be a more central role for the south in the international economic decision-making.

“It’s important to recognize that to bolster South-South Cooperation (SSC), a fundamental change in the global financial and economic governance structure needs to be initiated,” he added.

Aiming to boost up SSC, Ambassador Masud also flagged some other points such as delivering on Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitments, extending the financial support from new regional and global banks.

To accelerate technology transfer, implement preferential trading rules of World Trade Organization (WTO) and support from the reformed United Nations Development System (UNDS) to SSC initiatives.

The ambassador reiterated Bangladesh’s proposal for establishing a Ministerial Forum of Southern countries under the aegis of SSC which was proposed for the first time at Bapa+40 Conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina by the foreign minister of Bangladesh.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, president of the High-level Committee on SSC Adonia Ayebare, UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner and envoy of the Secretary General on South-South Cooperation Jorge Chediek also spoke at the event.
