Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 Objectives Coincide with UNESCO's Global Mission

The Permanent Delegation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has organized a reception on the occasion of the 40th Session of the General Conference of UNESCO in Paris, in the presence of the Saudi Minister of Education and Deputy Chairman of the National Committee for UNESCO Dr. Hamad bin Mohammed Al Al-Sheikh, Permanent Delegates of Member States to UNESCO, and UNESCO’s senior officials.

In his speech during the ceremony, the Minister of Education, Dr. Hamad bin Mohammed Al Al-Sheikh said that today we see the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 objectives coincide with UNESCO’s mission, through the Kingdom’s keenness to support educational, cultural and scientific projects around the world because of its regional and international status, and its roles in strengthening relations between Arab and Islamic countries and the global agenda for sustainable development in the organization’s educational, cultural and scientific fields.

He affirmed the Kingdom’s continued cooperation with UNESCO member states in all fields of education, culture and science, and continued support for programs offered by UNESCO.

The Minister pointed out that the Kingdom is one of the founding countries of UNESCO, where it was the sixth country that signed the Charter of the Organization on November 4, 1946, upon the directives of the late King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud.
