On Thursday, November 6th, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Agencies in Rome, David Lane, presided over his last meeting as President of the Assembly of Parties of the International Development Law Organization (IDLO).
Member parties, non-members and several distinguished guests attended the meeting, which highlighted the accomplishments of IDLO over the past year and detailed progress to come – including new member countries and multi-year commitments from other countries. “IDLO is widely recognized as a success story with a positive trajectory,” said Ambassador Lane in his opening remarks.
He pledged continued support from the United States to IDLO, though the U.S. is no longer serving in the capacity of President. Elections were held, ending the United States’ term as President of IDLO. Kuwait was elected President and the U.S. will continue its involvement with IDLO as Vice President.
