Excellencies,
Distinguished Delegates.
In the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, we have made a firm commitment to eradicate poverty and advance sustainable development.
SDG 1 takes on this challenge head on: to end poverty in all its forms everywhere. Using the Multidimensional Poverty Index to track progress on the SDGs is not just useful but it is critical. Therefore, I thank the President of Honduras and the Multidimensional Poverty Network, and Dr. Sabina, Director, OPHI for organizing this important event.


Hon’ble Prime Minister’s statement at the launch of South Asia Satellite (G-SAT9) by Government of India – Joint video conference of the SAARC Leaders held on 5 May 2017

Your Excellencies,

The launch of the South Asia Satellite today is an historic moment for the world. It is historic because this is the first time that a country has launched a satellite for the free use of its neighbors. The launch of this satellite is an impressive milestone in the history of the world; one that ushers in a new era of regional cooperation.

I congratulate the government and the people of India for successfully launching this important satellite, and would like to offer my thanks to their visionary leader, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for dedicating it for the common progress of all our countries in the South Asia region.
