This has been a huge step towards achieving universal literacy! A big thanks to the huge effort made by the OMPI (WIPO) and the 20 member states that ratified the Marrakesh Treaty, turning it into an International Treaty. Now, we must work towards implementing it and encouraging other member states to ratify and implement it also.
I am extremely pleased and proud of the fact that IFLA is a strategic ally and active in this just process of Copyright Exceptions and Limitations, which will provide access to information to blind people and people with difficulties reading written texts.
Today is a wonderful day for access to information and therefore Universal Literacy: a vision of the UN shared by IFLA!
