Global preparatory meeting (GPM) for the Annual Ministerial Review (AMR) of the 2012 substantive session high-level segment
03 April, 2012
The main objective of the GPM is to identify the key issues to be considered by Member States in preparing for the 2012 AMR on ¿Promoting productive capacity, employment and decent work to eradicate poverty in the context of inclusive, sustainable and equitable economic growth at all levels for achieving the MDGs¿.
An informal summary of the meeting¿s deliberations will be prepared, which will capture the key messages from the discussions. The informal summary will serve as an input into the Report of the Secretary General on the theme of the 2012 AMR and also help to inform the negotiations on the Ministerial Declaration.
The meeting will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will be divided into three distinct parts; a brief opening session with a keynote address and two short sessions, one with a member of the Committee on Development Policy (CDP) and the other with representatives of the key United Nations organizations that are engaged in promoting the implementation of the Global Jobs Pact.
