Regional economic and social activities

The five United Nations regional commissions continued to promote economic and social development in their respective regions during 1989. Four commissions held their regular sessions in March and April-the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE), the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) did not meet in a regular session, but its Committees of the Whole and of High-Level Government Experts held biennial meetings in March.
