A new universal agenda for inclusive and sustainable development (the 2030
Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs) was adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. We are looking forward to implementing these goals within the framework of the 8th NSEDP (2016-2020), the 10-year Socio-Economic Development Strategy (2016-2025), and the National Vision 2030.

We also recognise that there has been a shift towards greater partnership for
effective development cooperation. Development cooperation has been sustained by the contribution and catalysing effect of Official Development Assistance (ODA) as an important source of international development assistance. ODA remains to play this role but will increasingly also complement other important forms of development resources, for example, via greater use of joint development partner-Government co-financing of priority projects. In particular we recognise that strengthened mobilisation of domestic public and private sector resources, foreign direct investment, south-south and triangular cooperation, knowledge and technology transfer on voluntary and mutually agreed terms, yields important additional resourcing towards our shared development objectives. Not least, the engagement of the private sector and civil society as partners in development at the national, sectoral and sub-national levels also brings considerable benefits
