Dear Friends: It gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest greetings to the members of Junior Chamber International. The United Nations has long recognized that the imagination, ideals, and energies of young men and women are vital for the continuing development of the societies in which they live. In an era of globalization, your programs have helped young people around the world to develop a broader understanding of cultural, socio-economic and business management issues. In the 57 years since Junior Chamber International was founded, the world’s basic political, economic, and socio-cultural assumptions have been challenged. The difficulties that face us increasingly know no boundaries: climate change, drug trafficking, arms proliferation and pandemics. But the goals we seek to attain—respect for human rights, poverty eradication, peace, and sustainable development—are also universal and know no boundaries. Tomorrow’s leaders must have the capacity to function effectively within this global village, to understand the interdependence of all nations and all peoples. So in sending you this message, I express the hope that Junior Chamber International and other like-minded organizations will continue to promote mutual tolerance and understanding while fostering in its members a sense of social responsibility that is not only local but also global. On behalf of the United Nations, I wish Junior Chamber International continued success in achieving these goals. ? Thank you. Kofi Annan
