Saudi Arabia's Re-Election to UNESCO Board Reflects Trust in Kingdom's Role, says Culture Minister

Minister of Culture Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Farhan said Saudi Arabia's re-election to the U.N. Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Executive Board reflects member states' trust in the country's effective contribution.

He added that this step also comes thanks to the member state's trust in the Kingdom's support to education, culture, and science in achieving sustainable development goals and becoming drivers of prosperity.

Saudi Arabia was elected to the UNESCO Executive Board for the second consecutive time from 2023-2027 during the 42nd session of the UNESCO General Conference.

The Kingdom, through its membership of the Executive Board, will seek to enhance international cooperation, achieve the UNESCO's strategic objectives, and sustain the Saudi vital role in the organization in cooperation with member states, Prince Badr bin Abdullah said.

The Kingdom, as one of the first UNESCO founders in 1946, supports education, culture, and science sectors worldwide, under the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, he added.

Meanwhile, Prince Badr bin Abdullah shed light on the Saudi Cultural Development Fund through which the Kingdom launched six pioneering projects to help protect and make a positive impact on cultural heritage worldwide.
