Veteran diplomat thinks world is "on the right path" in promoting south-south cooperationListen /
Solutions from developing countries geared at meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are being showcased this week at the Global South-South Development Expo in Nairobi, Kenya.
The expo, which runs through Friday, is the first forum solely from the south and for the south, and looks at issues such as building green economies, sustainable development and decent work.
Géraldine Deblon is at the expo and caught up with Ambassador Robert Van Lierop, Special Advisor to the President of the UN General Assembly.
The veteran diplomat says the event has renewed his belief that there is hope and promise in south-south cooperation.
