During the opening speech of the previous phase of the virtual World Health Summit, organized by the Italian G20 Presidency and the European Commission, the head of Government pointed out that this is the reason why this conference was preceded by a comprehensive and inclusive process.
As we prepare for the next pandemic, our priority must be to ensure that we all overcome the current one together, said Draghi, who called for vaccinating the world and doing it quickly.
We must look across different countries and disciplines if we want to understand what we went wrong during this pandemic and what we can do better in the future, the prime minister said.
For her part, the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, stated that the objective is to control the pandemic across the world and ensure that the vaccines reach everybody everywhere, not only through exports, but also by spreading manufacturing capacities.
Leaders of G20 member countries and other nations, as well as heads of international and regional organizations, are attending the meeting, which will conclude on Friday with a final declaration.
