Andrew Tanswell speaking at MDG Summit
in Cape Town 3-4 May...
Since the formation of the MDGs in 2000, world leaders have continuously called on the entire world to play its part in making the MDGs a reality in 2015.
As an organisation that has continued to monitor the MDGs since their half way point, they have developed partnerships with some of of the world's leading NGOs, donor agencies and the private sector. It it from these relationships and success of their other project MDG Review that they decided to translate their success from print to exhibtion and summit.
Building up on the last MDG meetings across the world, this event will have its theme set out to promote the power of business as one of the solutions to the MDG challenges.
