The actress spoke about countering world poverty and highlighted that $350 billion is needed annually in order to achieve the Global Goals and end extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries by 2030. In her speech, Priyanka also spoke about using her position as an influential person to initiate change. Chopra said, "I might not be a billionaire that can make the kind of contributions that we’re talking about, but I know that as soon as I had a little bit of a platform when I started my work in the entertainment business almost 20 years ago, I understood the power of influence, I understood the power of keeping the conversation going. I understood the power of not letting it die down, to understand the urgency."
