    Culture and Tourism minister Pavlos Yeroulanos attended on Monday Unesco’s 36th General Conference that took place in Paris.

    At the conference, in which delegations from 190 countries participate, Greece submitted to become members of the Committee of the Global Cultural Heritage.  The voter will be held next week (November 7-9). Greece has been a member of the Committee twice in the past, over the periods of 1985-1991 and 1997-2003.

    Yeroulanos met on the sidelines of the conference with Unesco’s general director Irina Bokova and discussed about proposals and ways that will further promote the preservation of global cultural heritage within modern-day needs, possibilities, and opportunities.
