Agenda item 51
Follow-up to and implementation of the outcome of the International Conference on Financing for Development
Report of the Second Committee (A/60/487)
The Assembly has before it a draft resolution recommended by the Second Committee in paragraph 14 of its report. We will now take a decision on the draft resolution as orally corrected.
I call on the representative of Barbados.
Four further minor corrections to the text of the draft resolution need to be made before we proceed to adopt it by consensus. The corrections are consistent with the agreement reached at the Second Committee's meeting on 19 December, and are additional to the corrections made by the Rapporteur of the Second Committee.
In operative paragraph 4, the semicolon after "uneven" should be replaced with a comma, followed by the word "and". In the same paragraph, the semicolon after "services" should be replaced with a comma.
In the chapeau of operative paragraph 5, the semicolon after "Consensus" should be replaced with "and". Also in the chapeau, the semicolon and the word "and" after "Millennium Development Goals" should be replaced with a full stop. The final sentence of the chapeau would then read, "In this regard".
May I take it that the Assembly wishes to adopt the draft resolution, as orally corrected?
May I take it that it is the wish of the General Assembly to conclude its consideration of agenda item 51?
