The theme of this year was “Building resilience through hope - to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalize the United Nations".

Due to the pandemic this year, the General Assembly was partly virtual, combining in-person and online speeches. Prime minister Evelyn Wever-Croes participated in the online sessions and also attended in person as part of the delegations of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.  

The United Nations is an essential partner for Aruba. Especially for us as a small country to achieve positive and sustainable development. Now that Aruba is on its path to recovery from COVID-19, the United Nations is an even more important partner for our island.
