H.E Ambassador Lorenzo Vella, Permanent Representative of Malta to the Council of Europe, appointed as Chair of the Executive Committee of the North-South Centre

Reference Number:  , Press Release Issue Date: Jun 17, 2022
 

H.E Ambassador Lorenzo Vella, Permanent Representative of Malta to the Council of Europe, was unanimously appointed as Chair of the Executive Committee of the North-South Centre (NSC) - an instrument for multilateral cooperation of the Council of Europe’s policy towards its neighbouring regions – on Friday, 17 June 2022.


Malta has along the years proved to be a reliable partner in bridging the gap between Europe and Northern Africa. Our strategic location at the heart of the Mediterranean, allows us to relate to both continents, making us well suited for promoting dialogue, creating partnership, and fostering solidarity.


As one of its founding members, our policy has been in line with the North-South Centre’s objective of facilitating democratic political transition, promoting good governance, reinforcing and enlarging the Council of Europe’s regional action in combating trans-border and global threats. In promoting this objective, the Centre has held an active role in empowering youth and women through intercultural dialogue and global education in member states, and in the neighbouring regions.


Throughout its Chairmanship, and for the coming two years, Malta will continue the excellent work carried forward by H.E Ambassador Manuel Montobbio, Permanent Representative of Spain to the Council of Europe, and will seek to further advance the objectives and priorities of the North-South Centre.
