January 23, 2018 – Holy See Puts Focus on Human Person Msgr. Urbańczyk’s Statement to Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)
“Promoting economic progress and security in the OSCE area through innovation, human capital development, and good public and corporate governance,” according to Msgr. Janusz S. Urbańczyk, Permanent Representative of the Holy See to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
His comments came at the 1st Preparatory Meeting of the 26th Economic and Environmental Forum (EEF) of the OSCE, Vienna, January 22-23, 2018.
In his statement, the monsignor stressed a common theme of the Holy See that development must not only be to create wealth but to benefit the human person. He said neglect of the human person “is not only harmful to society itself but above all contradicts the inherent human dignity of every person.”
“Solid and lasting economic growth demands responsibility,” he continued. “Without good public and corporate governance, economic activity is easily corrupted.”
