Nicaragua ratifies the Constitutive Charter of the OEC

The National Assembly of Nicaragua approved, on 24 June, the ratification of the Constitutive Charter of the Organisation of Educational Cooperation (OEC), as part of the country’s aspirations to realise equitable, sustainable development through education.

The OEC Secretary-General-elect, Sheikh Manssour Bin Mussallam, commended Nicaragua’s ratification of the Constitutive Charter and expressed the OEC’s commitment to act as a catalyst and facilitator for increased equitable cooperation underpinned by multilateral, solidarity-based South-South cooperation.

The OEC was founded on 29 January 2020 by Latin American, African, Asian, Arab and Pacific Island countries at the International Summit on Balanced and Inclusive Education, as an instrument of intellectual, technical and financial cooperation and solidarity between its Member States as well as its Associate Members.

The Constitutive Charter will enter into force once adopted by 10 of its 26 Founding State signatories.
