Paris, 10 November—On November 10th, the General Conference of UNESCO named Audrey Azoulay (France) to the post of UNESCO Director-General. Ms Azoulay was nominated on 13 October to succeed outgoing Director-General Irina Bokova (Bulgaria) by UNESCO's Executive Board.

联合国教科文组织第39届大会主席Zohour Alaoui在选举结束之时——即执行局的表决生效之际——祝贺了新任的总干事。

“I now think of all the people I met in recent months, or had met in my various professional capacities, who have great expectations from UNESCO,” declared Ms Azoulay to the General Conference. “I think of UNESCO’s mandate, which is strikingly modern. I think of all of you who are aware of the difficulties of the Organization but who know that it is irreplaceable, that it is essential, in facing current global challenges and who aspire to the unity and serenity necessary to let it exercise its mandate to best effect.”

“如今我想到我最近几个月遇到的所有人,或者那些以我的各种专业背景所见过的、对联合国教科文组织抱有诸多期许的人,”阿祖莱女士向大会表述: “联合国教科文组织的使命正变得现代化。我相信大家都了解组织正在经历的困难,但也坚信,这个组织是不可替代的。在面对全球挑战之际,它的作用至关重要。它将一如既往,为促进团结与安宁而努力,最大程度实现它的使命。”

Born in 1972, Ms Azoulay was France’s Minister of Culture and Communication from February 2016 to May 2017. She has occupied senior positions in France’s public broadcasting sector and then served as rapporteur to France’s public auditing authority, the Cour des compte, and as a European Commission legislative expert on issues of culture and the media.

She is a graduate of the Ecole National d’Administration and the Paris Institut d’études politiques. Ms Azoulay also holds a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of Lancaster (UK).
