He will also attend the UN General Assembly.

Mudavadi will take part in high-level UN-related meetings beginning Sunday with the 2012 South-South Awards red-carpet reception, gala dinner and awards presentation at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel where US President Obama is staying.

On Monday, Mudavadi will also be on call for high-powered technical meetings with influential multi-stakeholders within the United Nations system before attending to proper UN-related meetings on Monday and then heading to Boston to meet Kenyan residents.

Among the meetings is leading the Kenya team to UNDP session on implementation of MDGs. He will be a keynote speaker at a panel on “Accelerating transformational UN-Business Partnerships for Development”.

At the South-South Awards, attendance at the ceremony is reserved for Heads of State and Government, Permanent Representatives to the UN, and leading figures in industry, media and culture.

The awards this year will honour governments, agencies and individuals who have made excellent contributions to implementation policy and programmes of E-Government and sustainable tourism.

Kenya relinquished the South-South presidency last year at a similar ceremony where it received an award for the Vision 2030 idea.
