Panel of Eminent Persons

In late 2011, the UNCTAD Secretary-General reconvened the UNCTAD Panel of Eminent Persons to advise him on how to meet the key and emerging economic development challenges of today, and provide concrete ideas for international initiatives on how to deal with them, and how to strategically position UNCTAD in this context.

As recognized in its founding mandate, UNCTAD is the focal point of the United Nations for the integrated treatment of trade, investment, technology, finance, commodities and interrelated issues, in advancing inclusive growth and sustainable development.
