On Thursday, June 22, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will meet with world leaders in Paris, France, to review and sign a New Global Financial Pact that prioritizes supporting and investing in vulnerable nations.

This comes after the COVID-19 pandemic, the energy crisis, and the devastating effects of climate change.

The President will attend the two-day Summit on June 22 and 23, which will look at ways to restore fiscal space to countries, particularly those with the highest levels of debt; innovative financing for nations at risk from climate change; encourage investment in “green” infrastructure for the energy transition in emerging and developing economies, as well as development in low-income nations.

President Tinubu and the other global leaders, multilateral institutions, financial experts and economists will take a more holistic look at the recovery of economies from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and rising cases of poverty, with a view to providing access to finance and investment that will leverage inclusive growth.

The Summit, which will be hosted by President Emmanuel Macron of France, will be held at Palais Brongniart.

The President will be accompanied by members of the Presidential Policy Advisory Council and senior government officials. He will return to Abuja on Saturday.

The summit will mark Tinubu’s first official trip to France since becoming President.
