Report on UNCTAD assistance to the Palestinian people

Prepared by the UNCTAD secretariat


Executive summary, second sentence

After “the occupied Palestinian territories”, insert the following text as a footnote:

In accordance with the relevant resolutions and decisions of the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council, references in this report to the occupied Palestinian territory (or territories) pertain to the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. For the sake of brevity, the term “Palestinian territory” (or “Palestinian territories”) is used as appropriate. Use of the term “Palestine” refers to the Palestine Liberation Organization, which established the Palestinian Authority following its 1993/94 accords with Israel. References to the “State of Palestine” are consistent with the vision expressed in Security Council resolution 1397 (2002). Unless stated otherwise, data on the Palestinian economy in this document apply to the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, excluding East Jerusalem.
