RELEASE G20 Conference – 23rd June


Release G20, the proposal to convert the debt is a commitment to sustainable development

«Over the next three years, the public debt of African countries will exceed 950 million dollars, which is why we propose Release G20, which is based on the restructuring and therefore the conversion of part of this debt into investments in local currency aimed at the Sustainable Development Goals. And we hope that this part is as large as possible”
– Roberto Ridolfi, President of LINK 2007.

The Release G20 proposal was enthusiastically welcomed by the participants in the high-level webinar held on June 23, and organized by LINK 2007 and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, arousing particular interest in the potential first beneficiaries of the proposal: the representatives of African countries. The webinar, which lasted over two hours, saw the participation of over 150 people, including leading institutional representatives, members of the African diplomatic corps in Italy, civil society, and diasporas.
