The President of the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, H.E. Mr. Miroslav Lajčák identified sustainable development as a priority. Therefore he will convene a Meeting on Financing the Sustainable Development Goals on 11 June 2018 bringing together different stakeholders around the same table, including the World Bank, OECD, regional development banks, and businesses. The event should act as a platform for stronger public-private partnerships to explore what the United Nations can do to better align itself with the rapidly-changing world of international finance, and support the 2030 Agenda and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.
