Addressing participants in a session on corporate social responsibility, Executive Secretary Heyzer said:

"[We need] to make sure that we move from that kind of a ‘showcase’ and ensure that corporate social responsibility is integral to business practices, something that will run through the whole production process.”

The week-long conference, organised by ESCAP, will also discuss measures to  boost trade and investment, and to increase regional economic integration.
