Today the CRVS team in the Statistics Division is saying farewell to someone who made up a vital part of our operations. Hong Pum Chung, otherwise known as HP to his friends and colleagues, will be leaving UN ESCAP and heading for the Peacekeeping Forces situated in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Speaking on behalf of the CRVS team, HP's contribution to developing ESCAP's regional CRVS activities was absolutely critical and his impact will continue being felt for quite some time. Thank you HP and we all wish you well in your new venture.

For those partners and countries communicating directly with HP, please direct all emails to escap-crvs@un.org and our team will respond accordingly. For any questions about this transition, please do not hesitate to contact the CRVS team at either the email above or call +66 2288 2409.
