The purpose of the Consultation of The Whole has not been successfully achieved.
Countries such as the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA) have different respective focuses regarding the issue. However, the delegate of the People's Republic of China mentions about the need for microcredit provisions.
To modernize rural regions, this should be the main attentive. There should be a necessity to reallocate a country's budget that might post a great challenge for developing countries.
Therefore, the suggestions that the People’s Republic of China gives can tackle the issue from root grass level.
Financing the process of modernizing rural areas isn't an easy task for countries that even struggle to have access to basic needs. The delegate of the Republic People's of China suggests that the council should disseminate the priorities and discuss them accordingly.
Henceforth, all delegates will have a common ground to proceed with future discussions.
She mentions that other sectors such as agricultural matters, waste management, research, and investment in education should be overviewed as well.
Investment in education covers vocational training that can act as a platform for sharing information between the individuals living in rural areas.
However, the United Kingdom stated an unwise statement that vocational training is intended to improve quality over quantity. While the reason for the high unemployment rate is because there are few job opportunities.
Education should be directed to the ones that haven't received the same opportunities with individuals in the middle-class economy. Since the number of slots in the workforce should always be increased according to the demographics of a country.
Considering that the topic is complex and need to be divided into several aspects, countries should come together and have a common ground on what should be prioritized so that failure to achieve the committee's objective can be prevented in future discussions.
