Mrs. Habiba Al Mar’ashi, President & CEO of ACSRN in her opening speech said, “We are at a point in time when we truly have the most important choice to make – to continue living and operating our businesses in an unsustainable way - or to embrace the sustainable development goals and create a better and more resilient world for ourselves and our children and their children. There is a real risk today that because of COVID-19, the existing inequalities in our societies will be further exposed and will increase significantly. We cannot and should not let this happen.
