THIRTIETH SESSION OF ECLAC

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO, 28 JUNE – 2 JULY 2004

ANNOTATED PROVISIONAL AGENDA AND ORGANIZATION

OF THE THIRTIETH SESSION

I. Organization of the thirtieth session II. Provisional agenda III. Annotations to the provisional agenda 1

I. ORGANIZATION OF THE THIRTIETH SESSION

The thirtieth session of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from 28 June to 2 July 2004. By a resolution adopted at the twenty-ninth session (Brasilia, Brazil, 6-10 May 2002) and subsequently approved by the Economic and Social Council by its resolution 2002/3, the member States accepted the offer extended by Puerto Rico, Commonwealth territory of the United States, to host the session. The meeting is being held in accordance with the ECLAC calendar of conferences for the period 2002-2004.1 The session is the most important event of each biennium for ECLAC. It provides a forum for the consideration of issues of importance for the development of the countries of the region and an opportunity to review the activities of the Commission. In consultation with the host country, the theme selected for this session is “Productive development in open economies”.

The session also enables the Governments of member States to examine the secretariat’s report on the Commission’s activities and thus apprise themselves of the work accomplished by ECLAC during the past two years. Furthermore, based on the programme of work that the Governments adopt and the calendar of conferences they approve, it also provides them with the means to define the mandates that will guide the Commission’s work in the future.

In the present note, the secretariat has put forward some suggestions which, should the Governments of the member States decide to accept them, may facilitate the consideration of the various items on the provisional agenda and help make the best possible use of the time available. As is customary at meetings of the Commission, these suggestions concerning the organization of work could be considered together with the provisional agenda and the election of officers at the meeting of heads of delegation, scheduled to take place at the beginning of the thirtieth session, on Monday, 28 June. The secretariat will make working and reference documents on the various agenda items available to the attending delegations.2 The work of the thirtieth session will be conducted from Monday, 28 June, to Friday, 2 July 2004.

Following the meeting of heads of delegation and the opening ceremony, the remainder of Monday, 28 June, will be devoted entirely to a consideration of the substantive issue, “Productive development in open economies”.

Throughout Tuesday, 29 June, the ECLAC sessional Ad Hoc Committee on Population and Development and the Presiding Officers of the Regional Council for Planning of the Latin American and Caribbean Institute for Economic and Social Planning (ILPES) will meet concurrently with the plenary session of the Commission. Delegates will have the opportunity to review the report on the activities of the Commission during the morning meeting and, during the afternoon, to examine the draft programme of work of the ECLAC system for the 2006-2007 biennium.

1 ECLAC resolution 596(XXIX).

2 See “Documents presented at the thirtieth session of the Commission” (LC/G.2250(SES.30/8)).

2 On Wednesday, 30 June, meetings will be held concurrently in three conference rooms. In one conference room, delegations will continue their review of the draft programme of work for 2006-2007 in the morning and, in the afternoon, the Committee on Cooperation among Developing Countries and Regions will meet. In a second, an ECLAC/UNESCO seminar on the financing and management of education in Latin America and the Caribbean will take place in the morning, while the ECLAC sessional Ad Hoc Committee on Population and Development will meet in the afternoon. In the third, a meeting devoted to the issue of sustainable development will be held throughout the day.

The official opening ceremony of the thirtieth session of the Commission will take place on Thursday, 1 July. The remainder of that day and Friday morning will be devoted to a high-level seminar entitled, “Productive development in open economies”.

The secretariat proposes that, following the high-level seminar, the ministers and other heads of delegation should devote Friday afternoon to a general debate on the relevant resolutions and their subsequent adoption.

The following annotations to the provisional agenda provide background information on each of the proposed items and offer suggestions regarding their consideration within the framework of the session. In this respect, it may be useful to recall resolution 419(PLEN.14), which states that, in order for the session to be fully successful, “government delegations should include experts in the specific matters to be covered”.

1. Election of officers Pursuant to rule 16 of the rules of procedure of ECLAC, at the commencement of each session the Commission shall elect a chairperson, two or more vice-chairpersons and a rapporteur. These officers shall then hold office until their successors are elected. It should also be noted that rule 20 provides that the chairperson or vice-chairperson shall participate in the meetings of the Commission as such and not as the representative of the member by whom she/he was accredited.

It is suggested that the sessional Ad Hoc Committee on Population and Development and the Committee on Cooperation among Developing Countries and Regions should each have their own presiding officers, consisting of a chairperson, two vice-chairpersons and a rapporteur. It is also suggested that presiding officers should be elected to direct the meeting on sustainable development to be held on Wednesday, 30 June.

It is proposed that the selection of the presiding officers for these meetings should be considered at the meeting of heads of delegation to be held on 28 June 2004.

2. Adoption of the agenda and organization of the work of the thirtieth session Delegations will have before them the provisional agenda (LC/G.2240(SES.30/1)) for their consideration and adoption. This draft agenda has been prepared by the secretariat in accordance with chapter II of the rules of procedures of ECLAC, bearing in mind the various mandates of the Commission. Representatives of member States may make such observations or suggest such modifications as they deem appropriate under the aforementioned rules of procedure.

It is suggested that the agenda should be considered at the meeting of heads of delegation on Monday, 28 June.
