QCOSTARICA – Costa Rica President Luis Guillermo Solis is among the 150 world leaders to take part in a series of meeting at the United Nations in New York city, beginning with the Substainanle Development Summit where they will approve a new set of goals to eradicate extreme poverty and combat climate change, in addition to addressing other major global issues.

The new sustainability goals, which was presented Friday afternoon, will replace the Millennium Development Goals which were established in 2000 and due to come to an end by 2015.

Some of the new goals include: building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation; making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable; ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns; taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts; and a very poignant bringing an end to poverty in all its forms everywhere, to name only a few.

One of the more surprising elements of the new SDG goals is the removal of eradicating HIV/Aids, malaria and other diseases from the list of targets.

The President will be in the United States until next Thursday, October 1. During this week he will meet with universities, businessmen and politicians from different countries to address diplomatic and trade promotion issues.

On Wednesday, President Solis will deliver his speech to the UN General Assembly, at 10:30am (Costa Rica Time).

The President is expected back in Costa Rica on Friday, October 2.
