“Epidemic highlights how health, social and economic, financial, trade and intellectual property policies are inextricably linked … We must begin with this observation to create a better synchronization of the diversity system on a permanent basis. The Declaration Centenary encouraged us to do so.”
“The conference’s adoption of an outcome document that supports and outlines the global response to a man-centered recovery will be of immense value,” he said.
CIT says it is “particularly important … that we continue to support our economies, jobs and our people while our labor markets are still in shock.”

This requires greater cooperation between governments and our community partnership He said.
