Italian Prime Minister Opens G20 Summit

Mario Draghi started the Group of 20 meeting in Rome with a message that advocated multilateralism and the fair disbursement of vaccines between rich and poor nations.

The pandemic has kept us apart, as it did with all our citizens. And even before, we faced protectionism, unilateralism, nationalism. But the more we go with all our challenges, the more it is clear that multilateralism is the best answer to the problems we face today. We must be aware of the challenges we face collectively. The pandemic is not over, and there are startling disparities in the global distribution of vaccines. In high-income countries, more than 70 percent of the population has received at least one dose. In the poorest ones, this percentage drops to roughly 3 percent. These differences are morally unacceptable and undermine the global recovery.
