Oman Wins Membership to UN Economic and Social Council

New York, The Sultanate today won membership to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for the period (2022-2024) after receiving the majority of votes when UN member states convened here last night.

Dr. Mohammed Awadh al-Hassan, the Sultanate’s Permanent Representative at the UN, said in a statement to Oman News Agency (ONA) that “This is yet another podium ascended by the Sultanate in the international arena. The opportunity will be utilized to develop economic and social sectors in the Sultanate within the context of Oman Vision 2040.”

The strong, prominent support of the global community at this significant economic and social event figures as the best manifestation of recognition of the Sultanate’s role and status in today’s world.

The ECOSOC is the third highest UN organisation after the General Assembly and the Security Council. It supervises economic and social plans of member states.
