Havana(Mogadishu24)-A high-level delegation from the Republic of Djibouti led by the Prime Minister, Abdoulkadir Kamil Mohamed, participated in the conference for the Group of 77 (G77) and China in Havana, Cuba’s capital, on Saturday.

The meeting, chaired by Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, was attended by leaders from G77 member states, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, and representatives from international organizations and institutions.

During the conference, the Djiboutian Prime Minister stated that challenges caused by conflicts, droughts, diseases, and climate change, have become hindrance to the progress of the developing countries.

“Climate change, environmental degradation, conflicts, droughts, and disease have been major impediments to the progress of developing countries, creating a huge economic gap between developed and developing nations,” said Abdoulkadir Kamil Mohamed, Djibouti’s Prime Minister.

He called on G77 member states to show unity, cooperation, and collaboration to bridge the economic and development gap between developed and developing nations.

“This gap between the developed and the developing countries can be narrowed through unity, cooperation, and collaboration to address the challenges faced by developing countries,” he added.

The Prime Minister underscored the need for a global economic system that promotes equality and suggested achieving this through modern technology and innovation.

This G77 conference focused on how to combat the challenges faced by developing countries, leveraging science, technology, and innovation to find solutions to issues related to infectious diseases, climate change, and conflicts affecting many member states of this alliance.

After the conference, the Djiboutian Prime Minister held meetings with several other officials to discuss about strengthening the bilateral cooperation and facilitating the implementation decisions reached at the conference.

The member states of the G77 consist of developing countries collaborating on economic and trade development with the support of the United Nations.

Although the bloc has 134 member countries, it still retain the status of the first countries to sign up for it in 1964, during their inaugural meeting in Geneva.
