Regional economic and social activities

During 1993, the five United Nations regional commissions continued to promote economic and social development in their respective regions. Three of the five commissions held their regular sessions during the year. The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) held its twenty-eighth session/ nineteenth meeting of the Conference of Ministers and the fourteenth meeting of the Technical Preparatory Committee of the Whole at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) held its forty-ninth session at Bangkok, Thailand; and the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) held its forty-eighth session at Geneva. However, the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAG) and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) did not meet in 1993. In July, the Economic and Social Council called for the role of the regional commissions to be strengthened (resolution 1993/61).
