Vice premier: Belarus’ progress on SDGs remains high

MINSK, 19 June (BelTA) - The level of Belarus' progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals remains high, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Petrishenko said at Belarus’ Second National Forum on Sustainable Development in Minsk on 19 June, BelTA has learned.

“The provisions of the 2030 Agenda and the tasks of the Belarusian state are closely interlinked. Belarus remains committed to fulfill its international obligations. I would like to tell you what we have done and what we are doing today to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in Belarus,” Igor Petrishenko said.

Belarus has an efficient national system of achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals under the leadership of the national coordinator.

“The level of progress of our state in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals remains high – 80% against the global level which is incomparably low - only at 20%. For more than 10 years (since 2014), Belarus has held its position as a country with a very high level of development and ranks 69th among 193 countries in the Global Human Development Index. Belarus ranks 30th among 166 countries on the SDG index,” the deputy prime minister said.

“Notable results strengthen the position of our country in the international arena as well as our confidence that we are on the right track,” Igor Petrishenko said.
