    Mexico supports this resolution but questions the incentives of international students studying in developing countries and who has the money to provide grants and bursaries to them.

    If organizations such as UNESCO, the World Bank and UNICEF have more funds, then we can increase our sponsorship educational collaboration between countries for the benefit of everyone.

    Since colonialism, Guyana learnt the importance of education from the British, which is why we spend around 8.3% of our GDP on education and we are one of the few countries who spend this amount. Our education system has also been going through considerable reform since the mid 90s. We have managed to subsidise education in primary schools and secondary schools and our literacy rate is now at 92%. It is still a struggle however to provide some basic resources for some secondary schools. Also, for significant amounts of the guyanese population who cannot read, it is a massive factor in their unemployability.

    We have always pushed education as a tool out of poverty here in Guyana and so we fully support the treaty, especially if it can aid our current education reform.

    The World Bank congratulates Guyana for the achievements in their education system. We're keen to work closely with you to further improve your literacy rate and the standard of education at all ages.

    During the Second Liberian Civil war, there was a pupil-teacher ratio of 36:1, and despite education being compulsory from the ages of six to sixteen, 46.6% of adults were illiterate (30% males, 63% females). Consequently, the education of females has become particularly important to the government of Liberia.

    Since the end of the civil war, the government (partnered with UNICEF) has made it a priority to educate women and girls in hopes of encouraging peace and development to conquer poverty. Subsequently, we have:

    -provided free and compulsory primary school and reducing secondary school fees by 50 per cent
    -promoted adult literacy
    -made sexual abuse and the understanding of individual rights the core of our education system [OOC I can't seem to get the right wording on this one...? /OOC]

    Post-secondary education is expensive in Liberia, and unfortunately only the most privileged students can afford to attend. Consequently, we are in the midst of reconstructing the system in hopes that all students will have equal access and opportunity to attend university. With the help of (further) funding from UNICEF, UNESCO and the World Bank, this may be possible.

    The Republic of Liberia is in support of this resolution.
