CAPE TOWN - President Jacob Zuma believes a strong vision and fresh approach is needed to respond effectively to global challenges.

He addressed hundreds of delegates at the 24th Socialist International Congress in Cape Town on Friday.

The congress aims to tackle issues plaguing many countries including poverty, inequality and the economic crisis.

Zuma said the three-day event must reflect on how to respond to these challenges more effectively.

He said three quarters of the world's population are victims of deepening poverty and inequality.

Women and young people are two groups affected the most by these issues.

The president said one in three people between the ages of 18 and 24 are unemployed globally.
