A Private Sector Leaders Roundtable was held on the sidelines of the fourth meeting of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons. Organized by the Indonesia National Committee of the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Global Compact Local Network Indonesia, with the support of the UN Global Compact, the event convened over 100 business leaders from 14 countries and representatives from five Global Compact Local Networks to gather perspectives on how business can contribute to the UN’s Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The Leaders Roundtable served as a platform for the Global Compact and its Local Networks to share the results of their previous post-2015 consultations and to consult additional business leaders from the Asia-Pacific region. Over two days, participants were charged with determining what pressing global issues they believe should be incorporated in a future set of development goals. Additionally, the delegates were asked to identify which mechanisms the private sector is willing to leverage to help address these issues.
