In his speech he stated that “this global crisis calls for a global response and a shared responsibility worthy of the name solidarity.”
Bettel drew attention to Luxembourg’s efforts in this area pointing out that 1% of gross national income is invested in public development aid.
He then called for a political will to resolve and prevent conflicts in order to help stop massive exodus movements.
Bettel also chaired a panel entitled “Eliminating the root causes of mass movements of refugees.”
