Pakistan has the singular honour of being a member of the UNESCO Executive Board consecutively since 1978.
Since 2013, Pakistan has won 21 elections out of 22 that it contested. The UNESCO vote is a firm endorsement of the positive contribution made by Pakistan in promoting greater intercultural understanding through scientific, educational and social linkages. It also reaffirms Pakistan’s commitment to build on these core ideals of UNESCO to further strengthen this human-centric vision of cooperation.
Pakistan will continue to be guided by these principles during its next term at UNESCO.
