142.  There was widespread agreement at the meeting on the relevance of UNCTAD’s work on assisting the Palestinian people. The “Report on UNCTAD assistance to the Palestinian people” (TD/B/57/4) received commendation from the majority of delegates who made statements on this item. They praised UNCTAD for its high-quality research and analysis, and for the relevant technical cooperation activities that the secretariat extended to support Palestinian capacity-building efforts. One delegate expressed disappointment with the content of the report, which did not reflect crucial inputs supplied by her country.
