The Finance Minister said these things while addressing a meeting in Morocco, which was organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry.
Nirmala Sitharaman is on a tour of Morocco these days, where she was to participate in the fourth meeting of Finance Ministers of G-20 countries. Along with this, the meeting of World Bank and International Monetary Fund is also to be held in Morocco. The Finance Minister is also to participate in this meeting. During the meeting in Morocco, Nirmala Sitharaman said that I am inviting the private sector to come forward and join it in pursuing the global goals.
It is noteworthy that the countries of the United Nations had adopted 17 goals in 2015. This includes taking steps to solve all the global challenges, from freedom from poverty and hunger to the development of cities. This target has been set to be accomplished by 2030.
This statement of Sitharaman becomes even more important at this time, because the process of giving money for global issues like sustainable development is under question. Global agencies like the World Bank and IMF are pressurizing for changes in these methods.
