Deputy FM Amanatidis’ address at the preparatory meeting of the 3rd informal meeting of National Commissions for UNESCO
Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Visitors,
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Athens and to the Foreign Ministry.
We believe that the European Network of the National Commissions for UNESCO is one of the most active and influential informal sub-regional networks within the framework of the Organization.
Through its remarkable contribution, particularly in the exchange of know-how and best practices, the European Network strengthens our common European voice in UNESCO.
Another thing we see as positive is the European Network’s role in enhancing UNESCO’s ability to effectively fulfil its mission on a European level, through the provision of specific results in the sectors of education, science, culture and management of cultural heritage and communication.
I hope that today’s meeting will prove constructive and fruitful, paving the way for the upcoming meeting of the European Network, which will take place in April 2017, in Thessaloniki.
