This will require, among other actions, that we reform the international financial architecture so developing countries can access the resources they will need to invest in the future of their peopleincluding strengthening education systems, this years African Union theme.We must work side by side with Africa to build green economies anchored in renewable energy, and ensure that the continents critical mineral resources benefit Africans first and foremost.We must strengthen our collaboration to safeguard human rights, counter terrorism and violent extremism, andfinallysilence the guns across Africa. The UN Security Councils recent resolution to support African-led peace operations is an important step.
