03/12/2019 - 17:11

In the framework of the “EU-UN 40 Years TOGETHER in Vienna | Multilateralism at Work” campaign, the EU Delegation in Vienna organised an evening with UNIDO, showcasing the impact of our partnership. The EU Head of Delegation, Ambassador Stephan Klement, delivered remarks about the EU’s role as a defender of multilateralism and UNIDO Deputy Director General, Hiroshi Kuniyoshi, elaborated on the EU-UNIDO partnership specifically. With the aim to make this work more tangible, the ambassadors of Ethiopia, Jordan and Sri Lanka presented EU-funded UNIDO projects that are being implemented in their countries. These concrete examples of successful multilateralism gave incentives for a lively debate with the audience of more than 150 people, including students, diplomats and UN representatives.
