The Convention of International Financial Advisors, represented by its Secretary-General Jean-Pierre Diserens, sponsored a working lunch during the high-level segment of the economic and social council in New York. There, guest of honor Luis Alfonso de Alba, the Permanent Representative of Mexico to the United Nations and President-elect of ECOSOC, briefed NGOs and others in attendance on his plans for setting ECOSOC’s agenda for the next year, and for the reforms that he believed were necessary to improve the organization. Ambassador Alba also took the opportunity to express his support for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, and his desire to work towards the implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals which will be put in place after 2015. Attended by numerous high-level individuals from UN missions, agencies, and the private sector, this lunch demonstrated the commitment of the international community, including ECOSOC and CIFA, to remain engaged in development issues after the expiration of the MDGs, and to continue doing work to improve lives around the world.
