Conference title: Round table on nomination of documents of the First Summit of the Nonaligned Movement for the international register Memory of the World
Round table on nomination of documents of the First Summit of the Nonaligned Movement held in Belgrade in 1961 for the international register Memory of the World was held on - line on October 14, 2021. organized by the National Archives of Indonesia. The Nominator is National Archives of Indonesia supported by the Archives of Yugoslavia (Republic of Serbia), the National Archives of Algeria and the National Archives of India. Directors of the above mentioned archives participated at this round table as well as ambassadors of those countries, in Jakarta.
It was planned that countries as Egypt, Ghana and Ethiopia with their consent support this nomination, however Ethiopia haven’t responded at all. As Ghana is concerned, the ambassador of that country for Malesia and Indonesia responded but without concrete proposal and in the name of Egypt, ambassador of that country in Indonesia responded asking for additional time to have more clear situation in Egypt and to decide whether the National Library or the National Archives with its documents will take part in this nomination.
Since the dead line for the nomination 2022/2023 is November 30, 2021, it is questionable whether these countries are going to participate or not.
Within one week, the national Archives of Indonesia will organize new Round table in order that representatives of the archives of four countries (Algeria, India, Indonesia, Serbia) agree about technical details necessary for nomination.
