Mohammed, the European Commissioner for Economic Affairs, Paolo Gentiloni, the General Commissioner for Italy at Expo 2020 Dubai, Paolo Glisenti, and the President of the National Youth Council Maria Cristina Pisani.
The President of the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) Pierluigi Stefanini and the Spokesperson Enrico Giovannini, by means of the 2020 Report, presented a Country strongly lagging behind in too many sectors that are crucial for the transition: Italy has improved and is on a good path for achieving only 5 out of 17 Goals. Our Country is among the 193 Countries that have signed the United Nations 2030 Agenda and ASviS, with its Analysis Report, offers reflections and suggestions, asks for a great commitment in the economic, social and environmental fields and recommends policies for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
