Italy re-elected to the Executive Board

36ma CG

Italy has been elected to UNESCO’s Executive Board for the fourth consecutive time, for the 2011- 2015 term.

Italy obtained another mandate to the Organisation’s governing body with 159 votes, scoring just behind Austria, France and Spain.

The Farnesina expressed deep appreciation for such an important result, deriving from the constant diplomatic commitment in favour of the Organization (Italy is the first extra budgetary contributor as well as the sixth ordinary contributor to UNESCO).
