Instead of creating an Internet Explorer object, you'd better make a form with a web browser object, and catch the DocumentComplete event.

There is an article on MSDN:

Well, after some testing, it appear that the DocumentComplete event can' help as there are some javascript running once the document is loaded.

So, we have 3 solutions:
1) Export manually the result to excel (there is a link on the page for that), and import it into your application.
2) Contact United Nations, and ask them if they have any API or web services to automatically retrieve the datas.
3) Do the dirty way: Add a loop in your code, doing Nothing for like 5 or 10 seconds.
Insert the following after the loop waiting for the document to be loaded (WARNING: No garantees that it will always work !!!):
'// wait an additional 5 seconds
Dim dt As Date

dt = Now
While (DateDiff("s", dt, Now) < 5)
