"UNCTAD IX was a major milestone in the renewal of UNCTAD. In close partnership with the other Member States, we succeeded in reforming UNTAD's intergovernmental machinery and in refocusing its work on a small number of priorities to promote development through trade and investment with the aim of facilitating the integration of developing countries in the international trade system. We are committed to the implementation of these reforms."
