HIS Majesty King Mswati III has left the country for New York, USA, to attend the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 78).

The king left in the early hours of Sunday with Inkosikati Make LaMahlangu for the meeting which will feature the High-Level General Debate from Tuesday, September 19 – Saturday, September 23 and on Tuesday, September 26, under the theme, “Rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity: Accelerating action on the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals towards peace, prosperity, progress, and sustainability for all”.

According to the assembly’s website, the 78th session represents a crucial milestone in the journey towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since it marks the halfway point to the global goals’ deadline.

The website stated that at the SDG Summit, leaders would review the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs, providing high-level political guidance on transformative and accelerated actions. The outcome would be a negotiated political declaration.

The event will bring together organizations from all corners of society to catalyse progress, push for change, and take bold actions together.

Through side events, intergenerational and intergovernmental conversations, UN Women will call for urgent action towards gender equality.
