The Economic and Social committee from the view of the Republic of Turkey. This committee has been given two topics to discuss in this session. These would be Recovering from the World Financial and Economic Crisis: a Global Jobs Pact as well as Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective into all Policies and Programmes in the United Nations System.With the issues we are faced with in this committee session, we feel that the topic on the Global Jobs Pact should take precedence over mainstreaming gender perspectives.

We approach the issue by agreeing with the Global Jobs Pact.
GDP is also an issue...
