One year - many anniversaries

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. The Charter of the United Nations was signed on 26 June 1945 by the founding members. 2020 also marks the 65th anniversary of Austria's membership in the UN. Austria became a member of the United Nations on 14 December 1955 and has since played an active role there.

The importance of the Vienna International Centre for Vienna

The VIC is of utmost importance to Vienna as one of 4 international United Nations headquarters. Since its opening on 23 August 1979, the Vienna International Centre - fondly called "UNO-City" by the Viennese - has become a true landmark of Vienna. The international organisations based in Vienna are vital for the city as location of international dialogue. Their presence is also an important engine of economic growth for the city.
