Thank you, Mr. President,

1. I have the honour to speak on behalf of the European Union. The Candidate Countries Croatia*, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia* and Turkey, the Countries of the Stabilization and Association Process and potential candidates Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Serbia, the EFTA countries Iceland and Norway, members of the European Economic Area, as well as Moldova, Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine, associate themselves with this statement.

Mr. President,

2. The EU welcomes the offers of several member states to host the next session of the UNIDO General Conference.

3. Given that the Secretariat is involved in detailed planning for the General Conference outside Vienna and the extra travel costs for UNIDO and the missions involved, we would like to request the Secretariat to provide us at the earliest opportunity possible with a detailed break down of costs and how this compares to the event taking place in Vienna.

Thank you, Mr. President.


* Croatia and The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia continue to be part of the Stabilization and Association Process.
