The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit held in September 2015 laid out common visions of the world to seek win-win cooperation and development of all, through the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is, therefore, the joint task of all countries.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development shows the scale and level of ambition of this new universal agenda.
Innovation, Competitiveness and Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are cross-cutting mechanisms for implementation and essential components in the “toolboxes” available to national and international stakeholders for realizing all of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals included in the UN 2030 Agenda.
Companies in Developing countries, either public or private, are disadvantaged not only by a lack of domestic suppliers but also by the means available to distribute their products to the global market. The lack of competition also limits the capability of the public or private sectors to meet the challenges of international competitiveness.
SDG 9 specifically calls for countries to upgrade technological capabilities and support technology development by encouraging innovation, increasing research and development and supporting a policy environment conducive to industrial diversification and increased value addition to commodities.
SDG 17 highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships in support of all the goals, and SDG 4 and SDG 16 underscore the relevance of education and governance to strengthen competitiveness and innovation.
The World Organization of Governance & Competitiveness highlights the globalization and liberalization, facilitated by rapid advances in technology which can create new dynamics of competition making competitiveness to achieve the SDGs.
The mission of the World Organization of Governance & Competitiveness is to support developing countries in their national efforts to improve and enhance their attention to the interface between competition, competitiveness, governance, and development through inter alia, capacity building, sharing of best practices and the promotion of public-private partnership, with a view to achieving the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The World Organization of Governance & Competitiveness fully support and follows the principle of win-win cooperation where governments, the private sector, civil society, and international organizations contribute to foster a sense of community of shared interests and establish public-private partnerships in playing respective roles in global development cooperation, including South-South and Triangular Cooperation.
In addition, the World Organization of Governance & Competitiveness share the principle of Inclusiveness and Openness whereby countries commit themselves to achieve inclusive economic growth and building an inclusive society, and no one is left behind. The principle of Integration and Coordination is fundamental to make development serve the people and put people first.
On July 2016, the “Global Network of Governance and Competitiveness to support the UNSDGs” was established with a public-private partnership agreement between the National Executive Director of the “Trifinio Plan, El Salvador” and the World Organization of Governance & Competitiveness.
The Trifinio Plan demonstrates the progress made in the natural resource management of international watersheds through international treaties under the political will of the institutionalized top countries and presents a path for new forms of organizational management.
Given the Trifinio Plan's goal of contributing to the unification of the Central American nation, the Joint Action will be towards an integrated and harmonious balanced development among the three countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
"Tri-national integration" is considered a process of promoting the flow of goods, services, and people between the three countries. On the other hand, the relationship between this partnership agreement and the World Organization of Governance & Competitiveness is in perfect harmony with this model and the principles of win-win cooperation. We present our common goals to protect the environment by raising public awareness of ecological integrity, characterized by principles of integration and coordination, principles of inclusion and openness, respect for nature, harmony, and protection.
To this end, the Trifinio Plan's vision was to outline actions with a focus on sustainable development based on the integration of citizenship, decentralization, sustainable management resources, equity, and gender perspectives. In other words, all of the elements set out in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in 2030.
