UN Secretary General: Global Financial Infrastructure Fails 52 Countries

UN Secretary-General calls for major overhaul of global financial landscape, citing unjust and immoral rules that have left dozens of countries in dire economic straits and proposing a UN SDG stimulus for debt relief and financing for developing nations.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres reveals the worldwide financial landscape is in need of major repair, with dozens upon dozens of countries in dire economic straits.

In a speech at the G7 summit in Japan, Guterres stated that although organizations like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are following the law and operating by the book, worldwide financial regulations themselves are unjust and immoral.

“The IMF allocated $650 Billion in Special Drawing Rights – or SDRs [since 2020].

“The worldwide financial architecture became outdated, dysfunctional and unfair…

It’s time to reform both the Security Council and the Bretton Woods institutions. This is essentially a question of redistributing power in line with the realities of today’s world.”

Within the present financial structure, Guterres reveals plenty can still be done.

He outlines a UN proposition that’s designed to combat climate change by offering a new debt-relief and financing mechanism for developing nations.

“We have proposed a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) stimulus that would provide an effective mechanism for debt relief and scale up longstanding and contingency financing.

If multilateral development banks would work together and changed their business models and approach to danger, they could leverage enormous amounts of private finance for developing countries at reasonable cost.”
