1. I have the honour to deliver this statement on behalf of the Group of 77 and China. The Group would like to thank the Secretary-General, the Deputy Secretary-General and their team for the various reports, briefings and dialogues with Member States on the implementation of the repositioning of the UN Development System, and the Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR). The Group would also like to express its gratitude to the President of ECOSOC H.E. Ms. Rhonda King and the Vice-President of ECOSOC H.E. Ms. Kira Danganan-Azucena for their excellent organisation and planning of the segment. While the G77 and China will speak to the specific details of the reports and the implementation across the different sessions of the segment, this statement will place on record the Group's longstanding positions with regards to the repositioning and the QCPR. I will make three brief points, since the Bureau has encouraged Groups and delegations to deliver highlights at this General Debate.
