President of the UN General Assembly to Undertake Official Visit to Guyana

The President of the 76th  Session of the United Nations General Assembly, His Excellency Abdulla Shahid will be in Guyana for an official visit from 9 to 10 September 2022. His Excellency Shahid assumed the presidency in September 2021 following his election by the Member States of the United Nations. This is the first time that a Maldivian national is serving in this position.

His Excellency Shahid themed his term in office a “presidency of hope” and focused on five priority themes – recovering from COVID-19, rebuilding sustainably, responding to the needs of the planet, respecting the rights of all, and revitalizing the United Nations. His practical efforts to promote gender equality and youth development were notable hallmarks of his presidency as well as the attention he gave to the development challenges that many small, developing states are encountering.

During his visit, the President of the General Assembly will have engagements with His Excellency President Mohamed Irfaan Ali and other Government Ministers.
