In his address, Ján Kubiš, UNECE Executive Secretary, recalled the priorities of the United Nations for 2010, as presented by the Secretary General in his December letter to staff and in the Town Hall meeting of 11 January 2010, and highlighted how they will be reflected in UNECE’s work over the next 12 months.
