The gap between rich and poor is widening in the world; Report of UNO | leader

Washington; News Agency: The report of the United Nations has said that although the economic train of some countries of the world is getting back on track after Kovid-19, the poor countries are still suffering.

According to UNO's Development Program report, the gap between rich and poor countries has been narrowing for the past two decades. However, in the post-Corona period, the world economy collapsed. The economy of many of these countries is recovering. Some countries have even started to progress economically.

The economy of poor countries has become more worrying than before 2019. Due to Corona, the gap between rich and poor in the world has widened.

The poor have become more vulnerable. The condition of poor countries has become miserable. Inequality has increased in the world. 40 percent of the world's trade takes place in just three countries. The shocking fact that the total income of the three companies Amazon, Apple and Microsoft is equal to the income of 193 countries of the United Nations has also emerged from this report.
