(c) appointed Ms Julie Carlton (United Kingdom) as the Chairperson of the Special Tripartite Committee for a three-year term (2016–19);

(e) decided to convene the third meeting of the Special Tripartite Committee in 2018, and requested the Director-General to include a provision for that purpose in the Programme and Budget proposals for 2018–19.
