THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY,

HAVING SEEN the Report of the Preparatory Committee on the Proposed Program-Budget of the Organization for 2001 (AG/doc.3919/00), and

CONSIDERING:

That, under Articles 54 and 55 of the Charter, the General Assembly is responsible for approving the Organization’s program-budget and for "fixing the quota that each Government is to contribute to the maintenance of the Organization";

That, based on the General Secretariat’s best estimates of revenue for the 2001 fiscal year from quotas and miscellaneous income (including rental income from the General Secretariat Building and contributions for technical supervision and administrative support from FEMCIDI and the Specific Funds), the Subcommittee on Administrative and Budgetary Matters of the Preparatory Committee of the General Assembly has recommended that the Regular Fund budget not exceed US$76,000,000; and

That the 2001 proposed program-budget presented by the Secretary General to the Preparatory Committee in March 2000 requires reformulation, taking into account the discussion on priorities which took place at the Permanent Council meeting of May 22, 2000, and the dialogue on the financial situation of the Organization which is programmed for the thirtieth regular session of the General Assembly, in June 2000,
