What Is a Concluding Statement?

A concluding statement is the statement or sentence at the end of a speech, paper or paragraph that summarizes everything that was previously read or stated. It helps to reiterate some of the main points discussed or restates the main idea in different words than in the introductory statement(s).

The concluding statement is a way to remind the listeners or readers of the point of the paper or speech after giving them as much information as possible. A concluding statement can also be used to make people think back on the information given by asking a question, giving a warning or giving them a chance to see what the speaker is thinking when imagery is used.
