(Jeddah- AlummahWorld, Safar 28, 1437, December 10, 2015) The heads of the OIC’s Institutions and Organs attended the “Annual Coordination Meeting of OIC Institutions” (ACMOI) held at the OIC General Secretariat in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on 8 December 2015.

The meeting was held at the invitation of the Secretary General in his capacity as executive and coordinator in the operations of OIC’s Organs and Institutions.

OIC Secretary General Iyad Ameen Madani welcomed participants and said that coordinating the work and effort of OIC institutions has always been called for by the Council of Foreign Ministers to enhance collaboration and efficiency in implementing OIC decisions and resolutions.

He also underscored the significance of the meeting since it will positively contribute to ensuring that OIC is a result-oriented body while increasing its international image as a global political and socio-economic actor in a rapidly globalizing world.

Madani also said the coordination would ensure the efficient allocation of resources and allow for better reporting back to the Council of Foreign Ministers.

Sayed Aqa, Vice President Cooperation and Capacity Development at the IDB, spoke on behalf of IDB President Ahmad Mohamed Ali Al-Madani. He said the IDB group is committed to coordination and cooperation among OIC Institutions and Organs to address challenges facing the Ummah, adding that this would lead to prosperity among OIC Member States.

The meeting also led to a review and adoption of the General Mandate of ACMOI, whose objectives include reviewing and evaluating the implementation of OIC resolutions, decisions and programmes of action; coordinating and harmonizing the implementation of projects; identifying joint projects and activities; and developing the capacity of institutions through the exchange of expertise and partnership with other organisations and bodies.
