António Guterres: World is going through the worst economic crisis in 100 years

Selava Omar –

Un Secretary-General “António Guterres” says, the world has entered its worst economic crisis in the past 100 years, as a result of the fallout from the “Coronavirus epidemic”.

In a speech on the Davos agenda on the organization’s website, Guterres noted that today’s world can be described as “fragility.”

“More than 2 million people have died (as a cause of the epidemic), and we are in the worst economic crisis in 100 years.”

The Secretary-General of the United Nations noted that the epidemic had exposed global problems, such as inequality between human beings and countries, and the instability of climate and biodiversity crises.

Guterres said that “entering the war against nature” leads to the fact that nature strikes us with a “strike of response”, calling on the world to dialogue and cooperation in this area.

“Governments, international organizations, the private sector, civil society and cities must work together,” he said.

The UN Secretary-General said the world has a unique opportunity to use recovery from the epidemic “to move from fragility to durability”.
