ROME, October 31, 2021 – The G20 leaders met in Rome on October 30th and 31st to confront today’s most serious global concerns and to unite behind common efforts to recover from the COVID-19 crisis and allow long-term, inclusive growth in our countries and around the world.
”As the premier forum for international economic cooperation, we are committed to overcoming the global health and economic crisis stemming from the pandemic, which has affected billions of lives, dramatically hampered progress towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and disrupted global supply chains and international mobility.
With this in mind, we express our profound gratitude to the health and care professionals, frontline workers, international organizations and scientific community for their relentless efforts to cope with COVID 19, according to a declaration issued at the end of the meeting.
”Underlining the crucial role of multilateralism in finding shared, effective solutions, we have agreed to further strengthen our common response to the pandemic, and pave the way for a global recovery, with particular regard to the needs of the most vulnerable.
We have taken decisive measures to support countries most in need to overcome the pandemic, improve their resilience and address critical challenges such as ensuring food security and environmental sustainability,” said the G20 Rome Leaders’ Declaration.
” We have agreed upon a shared vision to combat climate change, and taken important steps towards the achievement of gender equality.
We have also further advanced in our common efforts to ensure that the benefits of digitalization are shared broadly, safely and contribute to reducing inequalities.
