Emphasising the importance of collective action to transform the world through the 17 goals, which cover hunger, poverty, disease, inequality, ignorance, injustice, irresponsible growth, climate change, environmental damage, and the destruction of the oceans, he stated that: “Monaco devotes more than 1.1% of its income to official development assistance (...) and more than 65% of its funding to seven of the least developed countries in the form of donations.” 

The Minister concluded: “At its own scale and within its means, Monaco seeks to be resolute and responsible.”
