Pakistan Elected to Lead the UN Economic and Social Council

NEW YORK – Pakistan has been elected president of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for the 2020-2021 session on Thursday.
Munir Akram, Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN, was unanimously elected President of the Council for the second time for this position, having served as ECOSOC President in 2005.
The only other ambassador to have this distinction was Juan Somavia from Chile, the former director-general of the International Labor Organization (ILO).
The 54-member ECOSOC is the third main body, along with the General Assembly and the Security Council, established in 1945 under the Charter of the United Nations to promote international economic cooperation and supervise the work of all global financial organizations.
In his acceptance speech, Akram outlined the objectives of the Pakistani presidency and said: “Today the UN member states face three simultaneous challenges: COVID-19, the health and economic crisis, the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals and the existential threat of climate change.”
Quoting the UN Secretary-General, he said: “Inequality defines our times.”
The legacy of colonialism, foreign occupation and racism are “one of the main systemic causes of inequality”, between and within nations, Akram added.
He hoped that a COVID-19 vaccine would be developed soon.
“Everyone, everywhere, rich or poor, should have the same access to the vaccine,” he added.
He said he would work closely with Ambassador Volkan Bozkir, the president-elect of the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
