This year’s United Nations General Assembly is scheduled to take place from 21st to 27th September 2021, in New York, the United States of America. Key issues and decisions are set to be discussed and decided on in the course of the General Assembly. Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, organizers of the Assembly have recommended a hybrid Assembly where Member States have an option to either attend physically through country delegations, or virtually through online platforms.

In light of the continuing Covid-19 global threat, and to allow for the consolidation of reforms and recovery of our Economy whose fundamentals are pointing in a positive trajectory, His Excellency the President, Dr E.D. Mnangagwa, has this year decided not to attend the United Nations General Assembly in person. Instead, he will participate virtually via video conferencing. This mode includes his pre-recorded Address which is slotted for Thursday, 23rd September 2021, and any other High-Level Meetings occurring on the sidelines of the Main Debate.
