Today’s episode chronicles the travels of a small group of young Canadian professionals that recently traveled to Bali to be apart of Canada’s national delegation to a host of international development conferences hosted by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
This selection of live quotes from the events from leading public policy and international development leaders — Mamod Maladee (World Bank Group 2030 Vice-President) & Peter McArthur (The Canadian Ambassador to Indonesia) — is supplemented with critical analysis and conversation from returning delegates.
This joint programming created by Beyond The Headlines and The Young Diplomats of Canada showcases the role of youth in achieving our list of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Host and travelling delegate himself, David Boroto, takes listeners through an informed and objective discussion regarding the role and importance of domestic taxation and youth engagement pursuant of such goals. More specifically David sits down to have two unique conversations with returning delegates from both conferences in Bali.
Firstly he talks with Simon Lavoire Purouise, a policy analyst at the tax policy branch at finance Canada with a background in economics and international relations and was a fellow delegate in Bali to have an informed discussion about the importance of taxation.
Second, David sits down with Pierre Alexander Reno, a Project manager at Montreal International – economic development agency and Corina Ha, a B.Comm student in her final year at McGill university, who were both delegates themselves to discuss the importance of SDGs in global development and the involvement of youth in achieving such goals.
