Permanent Missions

Permanent Missions refer to diplomatic missions established by countries to represent their interests and participate in international organizations based in a particular host country. Permanent Missions serve as a country's official representation to international organizations such as the United Nations (UN) or World Trade Organization (WTO). Permanent Missions are typically headed by a Permanent Representative, who is appointed by the sending country's government. The role of Permanent Missions includes participating in negotiations, attending meetings and conferences, promoting their country's policies and positions, engaging in diplomatic discussions and consultations with other member states, and voting on resolutions. Permanent Missions also handle administrative matters, facilitate diplomatic interactions, coordinate with other missions and organizations, and provide support to their country's delegation during international meetings and conferences.
