“It is important that we understand the issues of concern to Member States not only at the global level, but also regionally, noting the differences in priority and emphasis,” said Joachim Harris, Chief of the Digital and Promotion team in the UN’s Department of Global Communications.

His team data crunched all speeches made at the 78th session of the UN General Assembly in late September from the 178 world leaders and ministers who laid out what matters most to them.
