WORLD DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION DAY
World Development Information Day is celebrated annually on October 24.
The United Nations General Assembly decided to institute a World Development Information Day coinciding with United Nations Day on October 24. The General Assembly had the object of drawing the attention of world public-opinion each year to development problems and the necessity of strengthening international co-operation to solve them.
The day was further recognized as the date on which the International Development Strategy for the Second Nations Development Decade was adopted in 1970.
