United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)
"The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was set up in 1947 by ECOSOC. It is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations. The others are the :
◾Economic Commission for Africa (ECA),
◾Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP),
◾Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC),
◾Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).
UNECE's major aim is to promote pan-European economic integration. To do so, it brings together 56 countries located in the European Union, non-EU Western and Eastern Europe, South-East Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and North America. All these countries dialogue and cooperate under the aegis of UNECE on economic and sectoral issues. However, all interested United Nations member States may participate in the work of UNECE. Over 70 international professional organizations and other non-governmental organizations take part in UNECE activities."
