It is worth noting that ESCWA is organizing the “Arab-International Forum for Rehabilitation and Socio-Economic Development in the Occupied Palestinian Territory” in cooperation with the League of Arab States and the Palestinian Authority. The Forum will be held under the aegis of H.E. General Emile Lahoud, President of the Lebanese Republic, from 11 to 14 October 2004. It aims to enhance Arab bilateral and multilateral partnerships between government agencies, the private sector and nongovernmental organizations in order to assist Palestinians in overcoming the socioeconomic repercussions of the occupation and address future challenges despite political and security instability.
