         The Regional Committee,

         Having examined the Proposed Programme Budget 2006-2007 for the Western Pacific Region to be financed from the regular budget and other sources of funds1

         Welcoming the presentation of the proposed programme budget according to the principles of results-based budgeting with the inclusion of expected results and measurable indicators to address the goals, objectives and strategies of regional areas of work, countries and areas;

         Appreciating that the increased allocation of regular budgetary resources in the proposed programme budget 2006-2007 allocated to the Western Pacific Region better reflects the health needs within the Region;
