Palau becomes the third country to ratify the Constitutive Charter of the Organisation of Educational Cooperation (OEC) following the signing of the instrument of acceptance on 23 September of the said Charter by the President of the Republic of Palau, H.E. Thomas Remengesau Jr.
The Secretary-General-elect of the OEC, H.E. Manssour Bin Mussallam, commended Palau’s commitment to the Universal Declaration of the Balanced and Inclusive Education (UDBIE) and the principles and values of the OEC, expressing the Organisation’s readiness to support and assist Palau in achieving the commitments made in the UDBIE.
