SERIES OF ACTIVITIES
Monday, 18 September 2017: United Nations Private Sector Forum
12:00 pm – 03:00 pm | UN Headquarter, New York
Each year, the UN Private Sector Forum convenes to bring the voice of business to major inter-governmental debates. CEOs, Heads of State and Government, and leaders from the UN and civil society come together to explore partnerships which address global challenges that no single organization or sector can tackle alone.
In 2017, the Forum will focus on the theme of Financing the 2030 Agenda. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires unlocking new forms of financing at an unprecedented scale, and ensuring the UN and its partners makes a strategic pivot to facilitating financial innovation, catalyzing responsible business growth, and increasing private and public investment in the Global Goals.
Participation by invitation only.
