The challenges remain on a regional and global level, said HRH the Premier while adding, “Bahrain remains confident that these can be overcome through the efforts of the United Nations in promoting peace and cooperation between countries.”

HRH’s comments came in a speech to the “World Leaders of Love and Peace Summit 2018” held yesterday in the Austrian capital of Vienna under the theme “Transforming our world: a global partnership for sustainable development”. The speech was delivered on behalf of HRH by Shaikh Hussam bin Essa Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Committee on HRH Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa Award for Sustainable Development. In the speech, the Prime Minister called on the international community to strengthen global partnership and efforts to implement the United Nations sustainable development goals 2030 which focuses on the neediest communities and groups.

“Even prior to the Millennium Development Goals and long before sustainable development was being discussed at this scale, Bahrain had already made significant advancements in development areas; for example, in providing free education, eradicating illiteracy, empowering women, promoting equal opportunities, eradicating poverty, upgrading healthcare, improving life expectancy, and expanding the scope of social security, amongst many other initiatives,” stressed HRH.
