      ECO Secretariat attends NAM Ministerial Meeting in Baku
      (Baku, Azerbaijan) The Secretariat of the Economic Cooperation Organization has participated in the Non- Aligned Movement Mid-Term Ministerial Conference on April 5-6, 2018, in Azerbaijan’s capital city of Baku. The meeting held under the theme of “promoting international peace and security for sustainable development,” was attended by 800 representatives from 120 member states as well as 10 international bodies and 17 countries as observers.

      During his deliberations at the meeting ECO Deputy Secretary General, Hadi Soleimanpour, emphasized that at present many states have been challenged by multiple inter-related and mutually reinforcing global crises which have in turn impeded their ability to attain greater economic development and social progress. In this context, international organizations can play a significant role in promoting cooperation to develop and implement sustainable plans at a regional level.

      The Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) has for more than five decades thrived to become a driver of global economic growth through regional cooperation. The ECO Vision 2025, which seeks to assist the Organization in achieving its objectives by supporting Member States to realize their own sustainable plans, has mandated the ECO Directorate for Human Resources and Sustainable Development (HRSD) to help increase standard of living, quality of life, economic welfare and well being of the people of the region through adopting social protection and environment preservation policies within member states.
