This publication is based on a selected number of speeches delivered and opinion pieces written by Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Secretary of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia, starting with her appointment to her current post on 1 November 2018 until 31 May 2023.

The publication is divided into three parts. Part one is focused on the regional perspectives, specifically highlighting subregional dimensions and countries in special situations. Part two presents key priorities for implementing the 2030 Agenda. In part three, the importance of mainstreaming actions for accelerating development with a focus on finance, digitalization and evidence-based policymaking is underscored. Finally, in the way forward, an attempt is made to deliberate on the opportunities to harness regional ooperation for sustainable development.
