United Nations Development Program Administrator Helen Clark kicks off a two-day official visit to Brazil, where she will meet with key government officials for a discussion on the Millennium Development Goals.

Clark is expected to sign a strategic partnership framework agreement between UNDP and the Brazilian government. The agreement will focus on South-South cooperation initiatives and continued efforts to realize the MDGs.

The UNDP chief visits the nation in the run-up to September’s MDG summit in New York. Clark said Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will be able to present during the summit a very good set of experiences in achieving the eight development goals, citing the nation’s progress on the MDGs.
