         The Regional Committee,

         Recalling resolution WPR/RC32.R7 on the number of Members from the Western Pacific Region entitled to designate a member of the Executive Board;

         Recalling also a similar previous recommendation of the Sub-Committee on the General Programme of Work, which was endorsed by the Regional Committee;

         Reiterating the fact that the Western Pacific Region has the highest population of any WHO region;
