The Council of Ministers of the Republic of Djibouti approved a bill for the ratification of the Constitutive Charter of the Organisation of Educational Cooperation (OEC).
Introduced by the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training, the bill was presented with the conviction that “the ratification of the Constitutive Charter of the OEC will enable the Republic of Djibouti to realise its aspiration to acquire an effective and accessible education for all.”
The OEC Secretary-General-elect, Sheikh Manssour Bin Mussallam, welcomed the commitment of the Government of the Republic of Djibouti to the values and objectives of the Organisation. He also reiterated the Organisation’s appreciation of the efficient mechanisms for the receipt of ratifications placed at the disposal of all Founding States by the Djiboutian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in its capacity as depositary of the Constitutive Charter.
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.
