General Assembly: Launch of the High-level Panel on International Financial Accountability, Transparency and Integrity for Achieving the 2030 Agenda - Informal meeting of the plenary
2 Mar 2020 -  Informal interactive dialogue, jointly convened by the President of the General Assembly and the President of the Economic and Social Council, on the launch of the High-level Panel on International Financial Accountability, Transparency and Integrity for Achieving the 2030 Agenda.
The high-level panel is expected to contribute to the overall efforts undertaken by Member States to implement the ambitious and transformational vision of the 2030 Agenda to change global economic and financial systems to make them fair and equitable: systems that contribute to ending poverty and hunger and achieving sustainable development in all its dimensions. Our common goal is to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
In pursuing its work, the panel will undertake an initial review of the international institutional and legal frameworks related to financial accountability, transparency and integrity. It will provide an assessment of the current frameworks and existing proposals to reform them. It should offer new and creative solutions to make the systems for financial accountability, transparency and integrity robust, effective, and universal in approach.
