You are well aware that this is important to achieve Millennium Development Goals by 2015 and the new goals for future, for which the meetings are on. The Global Compact (involving prestigious Public and Private sector companies and institutions) are also important contributors. We have now initiated some new actions that were finalised in last few months. We have formed ‘Global Leaders on Development’ (GLoD) group. I have spoken to some Presidents — European Union, Finland, Seychelles, Maldives, Guyana, Kiribati and Mauritius and PMs of Nepal & Mauritius, ministers, parliamentarians, legislators and leaders of India, Nepal, Bhutan, UK, Canada, South Africa, Finland, Seychelles, Kiribati etc), heads of major UN & international agencies. Most of them are committed.

The 21st century is witnessing a profound shift in global dynamics, driven by the fast-rising new powers of the developing world. China has overtaken Japan as the world’s second biggest economy, lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in the process. India is reshaping its future with new entrepreneurial creativity and social policy innovation. Brazil is raising its living standards by expanding international relationships and antipoverty programmes that are emulated worldwide. But the “Rise of the South” is a much larger phenomenon. Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey and other developing countries are becoming leading actors on the world stage. It is high time that India should give top priority to this vital aspect of human development.
