(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – State Minister of Finance Shehan Semasinghe headed to Pakistan yesterday (04) to participate in the SDG Forum which is organized annually as the sub-regional preparatory meetings for the Asia Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) as the regional level and the ECOSOC High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) at the global level.

This year’s UNESCAP’s Sixth south and South-West Asia Forum on the Sustainable Development Goals is being held alongside the Sustainable Development Policy Institute’s (SDPI) 25th Sustainable Development Conference (SDC) in Islamabad, Pakistan.

The Decade of Action for Achieving the 2030 Agenda has been severely tested by compounding crises from the COVID-19 Pandemic and war in Ukraine, also heavily impacting countries, and the people of South and South-West Asia.

The objective of the forum is to foster an in-depth and shared understanding among Member States and multi-stakeholders on strategies and opportunities at country and sub-regional levels to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda with special focus on many important areas.
