UN Assistant Secretary-General due in SL

 

United Nations Assistant Secretary-General, Chair, United Nations Development Group Asia-Pacific and UNDP Assistant Administrator & Director, Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific Haoliang Xu, will be visiting Sri Lanka from February 9-12, 2014.

During the visit, Mr. Xu is expected to meet and exchange views with high-level Government officials, development partners and the civil society. He will gain a perspective of the progress made by the UN System during the first year of implementation of the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2013-2017, while transitioning from a largely humanitarian to a development-focused programme in Sri Lanka, the UN office in Colombo said in a statement.

Mr. Xu will also engage in a policy dialogue with eminent economists and representatives from think-tanks on Sri Lanka’s development outlook, and with a cross-section of women leaders on issues pertaining to gender-based violence in Sri Lanka.
