The main actions that could be implemented to further promote SSC as well as triangular cooperation for the purpose of the attainment of the 2030 Agenda of sustainable development will also be discussed, bearing in mind that though SSC has been recognized as an important element of international cooperation for development; it is a complement to, not a substitute for, North-South cooperation.
