Statement at the G77 Ambassadors Meeting, UN Headquarters, New York, 22 November 2013
Since my election to the post of Director General of UNIDO in June this year, I have visited many of your countries. I have talked to many of your leaders – in government and business. We discussed, what matters most to them: How to advance the well-being of their people in an inclusive and sustainable manner. How to create the necessary jobs for the millions that are still excluded from decent employment.
