Opening remarks by Ms. Sezin Sinanoglu, UN Resident Coordinator: Launch of the 5th MDG Progress Report
The Report took over a year of research, consultations, writing, re-writing and writing again by a handful of very dedicated people to finish. I would like to sincerely thank all of them for their great work! Among them, I would like to especially acknowledge the team in the Ministry of Economic Development who took the lead and pushed the process through. It was not an easy one but the result is obvious: a good quality Report, with figures and analysis that we can all stand by.

Today’s forum seminar is the exciting opportunity to help national stakeholders take stock of where we are on the recommendations raised at the first UPR cycle review. I would like to congratulate the National Human Rights Commission, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Justice for undertaking such a thorough process (large consultation?) which is consistent with the spirit and intent of the UPR process outlined by the Human Rights Council. It also highlights the value of having a national human rights institution, such as the NHRCM, to work with both government and civil society to assess progress made in a rational, evidence based manner.
