As Executive Secretary, Christiana Figueres said that presidents worked in record time, that speaks about the efficiency and collaboration that this Conference has. She said the ministers began arriving since Saturday to join the session and they will focus on the progress of the key points on which they will deliver a detailed report to the President.
