Globalization must be more inclusive, UNDP chief tells developing countries

Globalization must be made more inclusive if the world's poor are to be brought from the margins to the mainstream, UNDP Administrator Mark Malloch Brown told the Group of 77 developing nations Sunday in a statement at the opening session of their meeting in Tehran this week. Speaking on behalf of United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Mr. Malloch Brown told the meeting that the UN is ready to work as a "multilateral partner to help integrate developing countries into a globalizing economy on terms that further our shared goals of gender equality, poverty eradication and growth with equity."
