Visit of G-77 Chairman

D.S. Kumalo, South Africa’s Ambassador to the United Nations and current Chairman of the Group of 77, visited ICTP on 6-7 June to discuss future avenues of cooperation between the G-77 and Trieste’s international scientific institutions. Kumalo agreed to have the G77 explore possibilities for transforming the Trieste-based Third World Network of Scientific Organizations (TWNSO), an affiliated organization of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS), into the G77 Consortium on Science and Technology. A formal endorsement of this measure is expected to take place at the TWAS General Meeting to be held in Brazil during the first week in September. With 132 members, the G-77 is the largest coalition of developing countries in the United Nations.
