G77/NAM, 2024: let’s be good hosts; and seize the opportunities

posted onNovember 28, 2023

In another endorsement of our global stature, Uganda will host the Group of 77 (G77) and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), summits, in January 2024. Formed during the ‘cold-war’, NAM was meant, initially to foster non-alignment with then, two world superpowers i.e. the Soviet Union and USA. 
After the end of the ‘cold war’ NAM continued to evolve, and now has 120 member states. G77, a 59-year grouping now, coalesced from its inception around promoting joint socio-economic aspirations. G77 has currently has a membership of 134 developing countries.
