The 33rd session of the UNESCO General Conference

The 33rd session of the UNESCO General Conference was held at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris from October 3 to 21. At this session, the Japanese government's proposal to the establishment of ICHARM was approved by 191 UNESCO member countries in the 3rd Meeting on October 12, and finally in the Plenary session on October 19. Following the approval in a cabinet meeting of the Japanese government, an agreement has to be made between the government and UNESCO; at the same time, a contract is to be concluded between PWRI and UNESCO. After all those processes are done, ICHARM would be officially set up as a part of PWRI.
