Like other parts of the globe, September 12 - the United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation will be marked in Pakistan on Wednesday.
ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 11th Sep, 2018 ) :Like other parts of the globe, September 12 - the United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation will be marked in Pakistan on Wednesday.
Observing the day is aimed at celebrating economic, social and political developments in developing countries, besides raising awareness about the UN's efforts to work on technical cooperation in that regard.
It is a time for individuals and organizations to agree on the importance of South-South cooperation, in complementing North-South cooperation, to support low-income countries in achieving development goals.
But in 2011, the Assembly moved the date to September 12, to mark the date when it adopted the Buenos Aires Plan of Action for Promoting and Implementing Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries.
The Assembly urged all the UN organizations and other institutions to enhance their efforts to mainstream the use of South-South cooperation in designing, formulating, and implementing their regular programmes. The organizations were also asked to consider increasing various resource allocations to support South-South cooperation initiatives.
Recent initiatives have been tied with the Tsunami relief projects. In recent times a silent revolution has taken place among fast-track performers such as Brazil, China, India, Malaysia, South Africa, and Thailand.
