DUBAI, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) – The international community must redouble efforts to forge guiding multilateral solutions to cope with the great challenges that people face today, Ban Ki-moon, chairman of the Boao Forum for Asia, said here on Monday.

Ban made the remarks when delivering a keynote speech at the 3rd Next Summit (Dubai 2019), which, co-organized by Next Federation, China Economic Information Service of Xinhua News Agency and the Department of Economic Development of Dubai, was held from Monday to Wednesday in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

“Such challenges are inherently global. As such, sustainable solutions to them must be born out through multilateral cooperation and synergized by partnership. And this is particularly true in today’s era of increasing nationalism and populism,” said Ban.

The former UN chief pointed out that multilateralism must be the glue that binds the International community targeted efforts together in three interconnected areas, that is, innovation, coopertion and sustainability.

Ban also called on participants of the 2019 Next Summit, themed on options at the crossroads, to collaborate with other leaders, businesses, civil society representatives, and stakeholders to share best practices with a view towards achieving the sustainable development goals, harnessing tech for good, and combating climate change.

“As long as we keep moving forward in an innovative, cooperative, and sustainable manner while continuing to build dynamic partnerships, there is simply no limit as to what we can achieve,” Ban added. (Edited by Yang Yifan, yangyifan@xinhua.org)
