Dr Supachai Panitchpakdi began his second four-year term as Secretary-General of UNCTAD on 1 September 2009, following his unanimous confirmation by the United Nations General Assembly.

Born in Bangkok on 30 May 1946, Dr. Supachai was educated there at St. Gabriel's College and Triam Udom School. He received his Master's Degree in Econometrics, Development Planning, and his PhD in Economic Planning and Development, at the Netherlands School of Economics (now known as Erasmus University) in Rotterdam.

From September 2002 to August 2005, Dr. Supachai served as Director-General of the World Trade Organization.
In 2001, he was appointed Visiting Professor at the International Institute for Management Development in Lausanne. He has published a number of books, including Globalization and Trade in the New Millennium (2001) and China and WTO: Changing China, Changing World Trade (2002, co-authored with Mark Clifford).

Established in 1964, UNCTAD promotes the development-friendly integration of developing countries into the world economy. UNCTAD has progressively evolved into an authoritative knowledge-based institution whose work aims to help shape current policy debates and thinking on development, with a particular focus on ensuring that domestic policies and international action are mutually supportive in bringing about sustainable development.
