Insights were also shared on the evolution of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), originally stemming from the Millennium Development Goals, along with highlighting the alignment between the National Development Vision (NDV) and the SDGs.

In a subsequent presentation, BAK provided an update on the Country Packages in the presence of members from the Temporary Work Organisation (TWO). This segment detailed operational methodologies, reporting procedures, and the integration with the NDV.

Prime Minister Dr. Luc Mercelina commented, “This briefing underscores our commitment to effective governance and sustainable development. The collaboration between BAK and relevant stakeholders exemplifies our dedication to advancing our nation’s agenda in alignment with global goals.

“Our current needs in addressing poverty, education, and welfare are critical, but we need all pillars to work together. Collaboration on every level to overcome these challenges is essential.

“Our starting position is one unbalanced due to existing social disparities among our people, and these current issues must be addressed to achieve our national vision. Through united efforts, we can create a more equitable and prosperous future for all.”
