At its meeting of July 25, 1994, the JPAC made a number of recommendations to Council on the matter of financial contributions. In particular, the JPAC recommendations to Council included the following:
- “we strongly recommend that each Party contribute annually to the Commission the maximum allowed by their respective laws”
- “we strongly recommend that within budgetary limits, the Secretariat be given the maximum flexibility to determine program spending”
Having requested and received from the Executive Director a report on the financial situation of the Commission, the JPAC renewed with emphasis the recommendation it had made in July and expressed the strong hope that each party will contribute, in a timely and regular manner, the full amount of its contribution.
