UNCTAD Secretary-General Mukhisa Kituyi informed Guterres that he would resign from his position with effect from Feb. 15, 2021, said Guterres’s press office in a note to correspondents.
Guterres is grateful for Kituyi’s service and his commitment for the remainder of his term to the functions entrusted to him as an international civil servant of the United Nations. During his tenure, UNCTAD advanced work on trade, investment, finance and technology, offering solutions to the major challenges facing developing countries, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable nations, said the press office.
The deputy secretary-general of UNCTAD, Isabelle Durant of Belgium, will serve as acting secretary-general of UNCTAD while Guterres launches a recruitment process, in consultation with member states, to find a successor to Kituyi. Durant will be granted all the necessary support to ensure a smooth transition, it said.
