Sergei Lavrov said that hundreds of millions of people gained nothing from globalization, which many people all over the world see as a process that only increases inequality between nations rather than one the narrows the gap between the industrialized and developing worlds. But Lavrov told a discussion as part of an economic forum in St. Petersburg - Challenges of Globalization. Competitive Advantages of Developing Countries - that the process should do more to eliminate inequality, poverty and social vulnerability. "It is important to give globalization a social dimension," he said, calling on the participants of the discussion to make it the issue of the agenda.
