Regional economic and social activities

In 1996, the five UN regional commissions continued to promote economic and social development in their respective regions. Four met for regular sessions during the year: the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), in Bangkok, Thailand; the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) in Geneva; and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) in San Jose, Costa Rica. The Economic Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) did not meet in 1996, having held its most recent biennial session in 1995.
