Uganda will in April this year 2020 host the 3rd G77 Summit.
The Summit is the supreme decision-making body of the Group of 77.
The First and the Second South Summit were held in Cuba and Qatar respectively.
Uganda’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) Amb. Adonia Ayebare is the current External Adviser on G77 matters.
The G77 at the UN is a coalition of 135 developing countries, designed to promote its members’ collective economic interests and create an enhanced joint negotiating capacity in the United Nations.
There were 77 founding members of the organization, but by November 2019 the organization had since expanded to 135 member countries including China.
The G77 was founded on 15 June 1964, by the Joint Declaration of the Seventy-Seven Countries issued at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the first major meeting was in Algiers in 1967.
