Summary
The sixty-second session of the General Assembly will mark the mid-point to2015, the target date for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The presentreport examines policy actions taken by the international community to meet thecommitments made by the Group of Eight countries at their 2005 summit held inGleneagles, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

countries to reach the Millennium Development Goals. Concretely, development partnersshould take urgent steps to increase aid flows, improve its quality and make tradework for Africa, including through a successful conclusion of the Doha Round.African countries should advance the NEPAD agenda by effectively implementing itspriorities. The option of business as usual should not be an alternative, as it wouldlead to broken promises and further delay the achievement of the MillenniumDevelopment Goals and the implementation of NEPAD.
