Pakistan urges world to combat rising poverty, hunger with unity

UNITED NATIONS – At the United Nations, Pakistan has urged the world community to unitedly com­bat the rising poverty and hun­ger through measures like social protection and relief pro­grammes. These views were expressed by Pakistan’s Per­manent Representative to the United Nations, Munir Akram, in his closing address to the event of commemoration of 75th an­niversary of Economic and So­cial Council. Munir Akram said scaled-up investment in sus­tainable infrastructure with an estimated requirement of on trillion dollars per year, is es­sential for transition to a dy­namic ‘green’ global economy. He also stressed the need for action plans for job creation in sectors such as construction, re­newable energy, transport and housing. The event took place as Pakistan’s Presidency of the Council is coming to an end.
