"From the very beginning of the many months long preparation period for the UNFF10 session, we saw your strong commitment to bridge relations between the host country and the United Nations and your diligent ways to find economic solutions.
Your organisational skills with attention to the details were something to marvel about. Your multilingual, professional staff created an environment and structure around the UNFF10 where you helped us to achieve the success of the whole session. We did it – together!"
