The Qatar Development Fund (QDF) 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.
Faisal bin Abdullah al-Henzab, Qatar’s permanent representative to the UN office and international organisations in Geneva, signed the agreement on behalf of the Qatar Development Fund with UNCTAD secretary-general Mukhisa Kituyi.
Al-Henzab said the agreement reiterated Qatar’s commitment to supporting the UNCTAD mission in reaching an international consensus on development issues and came as part of Qatar’s constant support for the Palestinian people.
The UNCTAD secretary general expressed his appreciation for the financial aid offered by the Qatar 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 Organisation in Geneva, participated in the signing ceremony.
