South South Cooperation Must Stay relevant

In a statement made on Saturday during the high-level roundtable discussion on south-south cooperation at the UN headquarters in New York, Vice President Jusuf Kalla reminded all members to ensure that the cooperation remained relevant.

“To be relevant, South-South Cooperation must be able to respond to the current challenges we face, which include continuing global economic volatility, the growing development gap between countries and within countries, energy and food scarcity, climate change and the threat of radicalism and violent extremism,” said Kalla.

“We must strengthen economic cooperation between member states in the areas of trade and investment as well as in technical exchanges. Given the potential that we have closer South-South cooperation can yield significant social-economic benefits, which could give better equality to its members,” he said.
