G77 summit seeks ‘new economic world order’

Multipolar world elicits warning from the UN chief.

Leaders of 134 countries huddled in Havana, Cuba on Friday for their G77+China summit, looking to set up a new economic world order.

The meeting should conclude Saturday with a statement underscoring “the right to development in an increasingly exclusive, unfair, unjust and plundering international order,” the foreign minister of the host country, Bruno Rodriguez, told reporters on  Wednesday.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres, who is attending the summit that concludes Saturday, raised concern over the multiplicity of summits ahead of the Friday meeting.

“Multipolarity could be a factor for escalating geostrategic tensions, with tragic consequences,” he warned.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on X, formerly Twitter, that the summit participants would “reaffirm our commitment to multilateralism, cooperation and development.”
