Balladelli was speaking to the press on the sidelines of the closing ceremony of workshop on strategic partnership framework between the government and United Nations (UNDAF 2020-2022).

The UN official stressed that the participants elected four key points.

The first aspect recommends work to ensure access to public services, with privilege for the most vulnerable population and create possibilities for the economy to support these services and guarantee social services.

Young people should take an active role in the Executive's policies by being endowed with knowledge and get increasingly trained accordingly with the market needs.

Women have particularly been recommended not being a politics object, but an active subject of the economy taking into account their capacity to exercise them.

As for the children, they are entitled to registration and the identity card.

Also defended improved population resilience, as a result of climate change (drought and flood) often occurring in some areas of the country, through joint work with the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and other related agencies.

The fourth point has to do with democracy, security and peace, considered  crucial for the country’s  growth.  Reforms carried out by the Executive, such as cut red tape, decentralization and combat corruption, deserve the UN support to pave way for responsible local elections in the country.

The event is meant to discuss and identify the strategic contribution of United Nations to the country's national vision and priorities.
