The dialogue will be with national development banks, the private sector, the education sector, civil society and countries outside the region. “It embodies their power to improve the company’s credit operations,” he said.

“This essential need to promote climate ambition goes hand in hand with the restructuring of the global financial structure,” he acknowledged.

This restructuring, Fernandez affirmed, “should allow for a new global, inclusive and sustainable agreement.”

“The growth of the world today cannot be measured by the scale of the industrial age.” Founded Argentina.

“The extension of debt relief efforts and the debt service suspension effort needs to be extended to middle-income countries with greater climate and financial vulnerability,” he continued.

“In the G20, we need to deepen the debate on the new global minimum tax, which will benefit emerging economies in a timely manner and contribute to the erosion of wealth and greater environmental justice,” he noted as an outstanding challenge.
