United Nations Week, which to the city of New York, occurs during that fourth week of September when the city plays host to the largest convening of world leaders anywhere.
It is during the week that heads of State, or otherwise dignitaries of governments from more than 190 countries arrive in town to address the United Nations General Assembly.
The official occasion, over the years, has been met with high anticipation not only among governments but also stakeholders from business, academia, faith-based, the investment community, and philanthropy alike. Outside of the halls of the United Nations, the high-level week would traditionally attract a myriad of international bilateral meetings, locale-based town-hall gatherings, business think-tanks, trade shows, and live entertainment with public concerts.

For Visiting Governments, the initiative is an opportunity to network about town, outside the walls of the United Nations, including stops at City Hall, Wall Street, and throughout New York City's outer-boroughs.
The Financing for Development Business Advisory Group with the support of Xen Pi Capital and the collaboration of a host of foreign government offices is proud to convene the first New York City – United Nations Week, a week of International Affairs focused on Diplomacy, Business and Multiculturalism and Diversity. The initiative comes into existence at a time of ever-increasing interdependence of nations for prosperity, peace and security where the challenges of poverty, social and income inequity, job creation, business development, inclusive economic growth, and climate change are interconnected, and hence beg for new bridges of understanding among peoples and a world economy that leaves no one behind.
