10:00:42 Soundbite by Andris Piebalgs (in ENGLISH): Well I think that the meeting is basically trying to shape the report that would help nations to formulate very ambitious development goals, and at the same time help the common framework. And the challenge is how to prioritise, it is always about it, because everything is important, environment, fight against climate change agenda, jobs etc. But I believe there are two issues that very clearly crystallised as very crucial and important. The first is jobs, jobs and jobs and this is not only in Europe but it is particular in developing countries. It is one of the most important issues, how you guarantee the people have a decent life with their own problems. And the second is gender, gender not only as a goal in itself, but also as a measurement how society achieves prosperity, equality and also sustainability. 00:01:10

10:03:04 Soundbite by David Cameron (in ENGLISH): We are here in a country that is being transformed after years of conflict and bloodshed. And it is a reminder that tackling poverty and achieving growth is about more than aid or even money. It is about the absence of conflict, the presence of good government, and those building blocks of growth and prosperity that my other co-chairs have spoken about. 00:00:26
