Moroccan Ambassador re-elected Vice-President of UNICEF Executive Board for third consecutive year

Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Omar Hilale, was re-elected Vice-President of the Executive Board of UNICEF for the third consecutive year.

The Moroccan diplomat was unanimously re-elected to the position for 2021 by the Group of African Ambassadors to the United Nations, who mark thus their confidence in the Ambassador of the Kingdom, his dynamism within the Organization and his commitment to the cause of children, particularly since the United Nations Children’s Fund plays an extremely crucial role in Africa, whose youth and child populations is continuously growing.

The five new members of the UNICEF Executive Board for 2021, namely the ambassadors of Morocco, Lithuania, the Republic of Korea, Costa Rica and New Zealand, will assess UNICEF’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, make decisions to readjust the Agency’s programs to overcome the impact of the pandemic on the realization of children’s rights, and focus on the best actions that will rebuild a better and more resilient future for all the children of the world.

They will also contribute to the preparation of the UNICEF strategic plan for the period 2022-2025.
