Qatar Development Fund, UNCTAD Sign Agreement to Support Palestinian People Unit


Qatar Development Fund and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) have signed an agreement to back the Assistance to the Palestinian People Unit (APPU) in order to provide technical support and training for Palestinians in the occupied territories.

HE Faisal bin Abdullah Al Henzab, Qatar's permanent representative to the U.N. office and international organizations in Geneva, signed the agreement on behalf of Qatar Development Fund with UNCTAD Secretary General Mukhisa Kituyi.

Al Henzab said the agreement reiterates Qatar's commitment to supporting the UNCTAD mission in reaching an international consensus on development issues and comes as part of Qatar's constant support for the Palestinian people.

The UNCTAD secretary general praised the agreement and expressed his appreciation for the financial aid offered by Qatar Development Fund, stressing the importance of continuing the partnership between Qatar and UNCTAD, especially as Qatar prepares to hand over the presidency of UNCTAD during the 14th session in Nairobi in July.

Amna Jaber Al Kuwari, of Qatar's office to the World Trade Organization in Geneva, participated in the signing ceremony.
