am honored that you have invited me to speak to this Commission on Social
Development and participate in the launch of the first World Day of Social
Justice. I understand that this is the first time the President of the General
Assembly addresses this central body within the Economic and Social Council. I

and the inclusion of the socially marginalized have been a focus of my work for
my entire life and are priorities of my tenure here during the 63rd session of the General Assembly.
