This meeting was an opportunity for the Director-General to, "welcome Argentina's commitment in UNESCO's fields of competence, in particular through its chairmanship of the first ministerial meeting on education in the context of the G20... It is urgent to put education at the top of the global governance agenda, as it is the only way to address this global challenge. Education is the challenge of the Century and the central lever for the success of all the objectives of the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development."
