Honourable Chairs, Distinguished Delegates,

Equality in all forms has come a long way, yet is far from perfection. Despite many countries’ attempts to eliminate discrimination, the issue is still present in everyday lives of many people. What we need to realise is that equality of opportunity means that each human being can fulfil their potential, thus maximizing the economic growth and improving the overall quality of life. It should therefore be in the interest of all countries to opt for equality of opportunity in employment.
