The domain of public economics is increasing as governments‘ policy goal
is shifting from economic development to sustainable development.
Government has to act as a trustee representing future generations, and
public policies must balance and integrate the three pillars (economic,
social and environmental) of sustainable development, recognizing the

the need for global partnership and considers the preparatory steps for
adoption of SDGs and the means of implementation.
