President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will lead the last meeting of United Nations (UN) high level panel on post-2015 development agenda, scheduled to take place in New York, US, from May 29 to 31.

'€œPlease pray for me so that the last panel meeting will run smoothly and its results can bring benefits for all of us,'€ Yudhoyono said via his Twitter account, @SBYudhoyono, on Sunday, as quoted by Antara news agency.

Yudhoyono and two other leaders, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, were appointed by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to co-chair the panel and advise on the new global development framework after the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire in 2015.

The fifth gathering of the high level panel is the final in a series of meetings beginning in New York, US, in September 2012; then London, UK, in November 2012; then Monrovia, Liberia, in February, 2013; and most recently Bali, Indonesia, in March 2013.

The President said the panel'€™s report would be handed over to the UN Secretary-General to be discussed by UN member countries. (ebf)
