To permit candid discussions, we never attribute quotes without the speaker’s specific permission. Global Government Forum produces a report after each event so that delegates can share some of the discussions with their colleagues and a wider audience. These focus on the event’s key findings, perspectives and messages, and blend unattributed and paraphrased comments with quotes cleared by participants after the event.
Held virtually, on 11 March 2021.
