The UN chief announces the establishment of an advisory board for multilateralism

, March 18 (Xinhua) – UN Secretary- Antonio Guterres announced on Friday the establishment of a high-level advisory board for effective multilateralism.

The Advisory Committee will be invited to build on the ideas in Guterre’s report on our common agenda and to make concrete proposals for more effective multilateral arrangements on a number of important global issues. Their non-binding recommendations would serve as a basis for Member States’ deliberations at the proposed 2023 Future Summit.

Our common agenda, released in September 2021, calls for stronger control over key issues of global interest. The report proposes a summit for the future 2023 to present ideas for board arrangements in certain areas that can be considered global public goods or global commons, including and after 2030, the international financial architecture, peace, outer space, the digital space, major risks and the interests of future generations.

The board consists of 12 prominent people with Liberia’s former president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and ’s former Stefan Lofven as co-chair.
