The Diplomatic Council enjoys special consultative status with the UN

The Diplomatic Council has been granted by the United Nations the highest status that can be achieved for a non-governmental organisation (NGO): the special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations. This status entitles the Diplomatic Council to attend UN sessions and make written and oral statements at international UN conferences and events. The Diplomatic Council will consequently have the opportunity to globally support the interest of economic diplomacy, express its views and influence the work of the Economic and Social Council: a flourishing economy that brings prosperity to mankind is one of the best peace guarantors worldwide. Diplomatic Council members can apply to become Diplomatic Council UN delegates and attend UN sessions in New York, Geneva and Vienna. By offering this unique opportunity, the Diplomatic Council opens to its members access to one of the most exclusive, global contact networks with regard to economic and social issues.
