Commitment to the MDGs. Switzerland has made poverty reduction one of the five strategic goals of its foreign policy and considers the MDGs and the Millennium Declaration as development policy milestones. Both the Swiss Agency for Development Co-operation (SDC) and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (seco) have made poverty reduction a main objective of their respective strategies and address poverty with different, yet complementary, approaches and tools. Switzerland’s commitment in favour of the MDGs was reiterated by the Federal Council (government) in its report “Millennium Development Goals: Progress Report of Switzerland 2005” and at the September 2005 “High level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly” (M + 5 Summit).
