CIBJO President Addresses High Level Segment of ECOSOC in New York

16 july 2014

CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri has addressed the High Level Segment of the UN Economic and Social Council in New York and in his presentation stressed the commitment of both CIBJO and the international jewellery sector to assisting the United Nations meet its development goals.
Dr. Cavalieri was addressing the annual keynote gathering of the UN agency as the head of the jewellery industry's only organisation with special consultative status with ECOSOC, which is had since 2006. CIBJO was also one of only a handful of NGOs with special consultative status invited to make a formal oral statement before the 2014 High Level Segment.
In his address to the gathering, Dr. Cavalieri reviewed CIBJO's efforts to promote an industry-wide understanding that the jewellery industry should provide both sustainable and social development opportunities in the countries and regions where its stakeholders reside.
CIBJO, Dr. Cavalieri said, has been unrelenting in promoting the UN Development Agenda and the Millennium Development Goals. "For almost 10 years, CIBJO and its worldwide membership have not only integrated the MDGs in the activities and in the program of each annual Congress, but we have also launched a concrete campaign of awareness, education and training, in order to insert the MDGs in the daily operations of our members throughout the world," he stated.
CIBJO, he told the UN gathering, has entered in various partnership agreements with other major organisations to support the MDGs and to ensure compliance with the UN human rights, civil rights, labour rights and gender rights. "These partnership agreements contribute to greater ethical awareness and accountability, as well as to mutual support with civil society organisations," he stated.
