On 26th October 2011 UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon issued a statement in which he welcomed the “Chair’s Text” from the 64th Annual UN DPI NGO Conference held in Bonn in September.
He said “I welcome the declaration you adopted at last month’s DPI/NGO conference in Bonn. Your views are being shared with all Member States. I will continue to count on you to drive this agenda forward.” He went on to say “Governments cannot do it alone. We need support from business communities, civil societies, philanthropists, and faith leaders, and we need coalitions, we need alliances, multistakeholder platforms. This is our business model, and we know that it works.”
