Van Rompuy also welcomed that the ASEM accepted Kazakhstan and Croatia as its members, making it a 53-member forum. He stressed that the ASEM will continue to enlarge and attract new members.

UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres Monday stressed the role of the UN to help reshape ""unproductive and unrewarding"" finance and redirect investment to creating a better world for all.

""The choices we make on finance will be critical Marshon Lattimore Youth Jersey ,"" Guterres told a special event held at the UN Headquarters in New York on financing for global development goals as the high-level week of the United Nations General Assembly gets underway.

Guterres said that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which was adopted by UN Member States in September 2015, are a blueprint for building an inclusive, sustainable fair globalization.

""We can choose to bemoan the lack of financing for the 2030 Agenda in a world awash with so much unproductive and unrewarding finance. Or we can grasp the opportunity to reshape finance, according to our urgent, collective needs,"" he said. ""The choice is clear. Let us invest in the 2030 Agenda and finance a better world for all.""

However Marcus Davenport Youth Jersey , today's global financial system, which manages some 300 trillion U.S. dollars in financial assets, is simply not fit for purpose, the UN chief said, recalling that the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, adopted in 2015 at an international conference in the Ethiopian capital on financing for development, highlights the importance of being innovative in leveraging resources and financing for development.

Also addressing the event was Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, who said that trillions of dollars need to be mobilized a year by tapping into the savings of citizens around the world Andrus Peat Womens Jersey , official development assistance (ODA), domestic financing and the world's financial system.

The UN has always been engaged in this financing agenda, with its partners, allies and of course Member States, but ""our question is whether we are doing enough, and the answer, in short Sheldon Rankins Womens Jersey , is no,"" she said, explaining that ""this event is timely as it highlights progress and opportunities from parts of the UN's leadership team, key partners such as the World Bank, private sector actors, and Member States.
