At the opening plenary meeting, on Monday morning, 20 September 2010, the initial speakers will be the two Co-Chairpersons, the Secretary-General, the head of the delegation of the host country of the Organization, the President of the Economic and Social Council, the President of the World Bank, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, the Director-General of the World Trade Organization, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, as the Chair of the United Nations Development Group.



Participation by Non-Governmental Organizations, Civil Society and the Private Sector

As has been the case in previous high-level meetings of the General Assembly, due to increased security measures necessary to accommodate the meetings, access to the UN premises will be severely restricted for representatives of ECOSOC-accredited NGOs.

Participation as speakers:

As per resolution 64/184, a small number of representatives of NGOs, CSOs and the private sector will be participating as speakers in the Round Tables. A Task Force of civil society representatives is assisting the Office of the President of the General Assembly in the nomination process of these speakers.

Participation as observers:


Representatives of NGOs in consultative status with ECOSOC can be issued a secondary pass with access to the fourth floor balcony viewing gallery in the General Assembly hall for the plenary sessions on 20, 21 and 22 September.
