Mission to Thailand by Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs Maria Tripodi (16-18 May).

The Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Maria Tripodi is on a mission to Thailand from 16 to 18 May to address the 79th session of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP), one of the five UN regional Commissions whose work focuses on action to combat climate change and promote sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific. Founded in 1947, ESCAP is headquartered in Bangkok and aims to foster sustainable development and inclusive growth in the region. UN-ESCAP is made up of 53 Member States and Italy participates in it as a permanent observer.

On the sidelines of the proceedings, Under Secretary Tripodi will be holding bilateral meetings with Thailand’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Vijavat Isarabhakdi, with UN-ESCAP’s Executive Secretary, and with representatives of the governments of some Pacific Island States, also to support the campaign in favour of Rome’s candidacy to host Expo2030.

Afterwards, the Undersecretary will visit the Italian pavilion of the Future Energy Asia 2023 Fair, organised by the ICE Agency, where 13 Italian companies are present. On Thursday, the Undersecretary will end her mission by visiting the Sattahip naval base to meet the crew of the Italian Navy ship “Francesco Morosini“, currently engaged in the Indo-Pacific campaign
