The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 17) ‘Partnerships for the goals’ calls for a universal, rules-based, open, non-discriminatory and equitable multilateral trading system under WTO, and the implementation of duty-free and quota-free market access for all least developed countries.
It also highlights the importance of global macroeconomic stability and support for developing countries in attaining long-term debt sustainability. Furthermore, it emphasises the importance of access to science, technology and innovation, in particular internet-based information and communications technology.
Monitoring SDG 17 in an EU context focuses on progress made in strengthening global partnership, improving financial governance, and improving access to technology.
How is your country doing in this regard?
How much financial support, expressed as a share of GNI, does your country provide to developing countries? And do you know the financial situation of your government? How high is its debt in relation to GDP?
