Egypt is participating in the High-level Thematic Debate on Digital Cooperation and Connectivity, organized by the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), on April 27, at the UN headquarters, in New York, USA.

The High-level Thematic Debate is convened under the theme “Whole-of-Society Approaches to End the Digital Divide;” it will highlight the importance and urgency of political commitment at the highest levels to address the digital divide in support of COVID-19 adaptation, response and recovery efforts, in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Debate will also mobilize the international community to strengthen related existing multi-stakeholder initiatives and partnerships, and support the creation of additional partnerships to accelerate implementation efforts.

Established in 1945 under the UN Charter, the General Assembly occupies a central position as the chief deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the UN. Comprised of all 193 Members of the UN, the General Assembly provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter, and plays a significant role in the process of standard-setting and the codification of international law.
