Developing countries should rely on their own resources to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs, says Finance Minister AMA Muhith.
At a meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation or GPEDC on Tuesday, Muhith said Bangladesh has been praised by the global community over its achievements in the Millennium Development Goals or MDGs.
“Developing nations will have to use their own resources for SDGs,” he said.
Describing the process of getting foreign aid to be ‘quite complex’, Muhith said: “That’s why several countries are working with their own resources and doing well.”
“Some are actually doing better than anticipated,” he further said.
Officially known as ‘Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’, the SDG is a set of 17 “Global Goals” with 169 targets between them.
