Uzbekistan Elected to UN Economic and Social Council for the First Time

Uzbekistan has been elected for the first time to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for the period 2025-2027. ECOSOC is the main body of the UN that coordinates the organization’s economic and social activities.

For the first time in its history, Uzbekistan has secured a seat in ECOSOC, according to the country’s Foreign Ministry. The elections for the council members for the term 2025-2027 were held on June 7 at the UN headquarters in New York.

In the secret ballot, Uzbekistan received 185 votes out of 193 UN member states. Starting January 1, 2025, Uzbekistan will occupy one of the four available seats from the Asia-Pacific Group.

ECOSOC plays a key role in promoting sustainable development in three dimensions: economic, social, and environmental. It consists of 54 member states elected for a three-year term.

It’s worth noting that Kazakhstan has been a member of this council since 2022.
