"I am pleased to send greetings to the annual conference of the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience and to congratulate you on 70th anniversary.
Since its inception, your organization has championed the exchange of ideas and experience. By enabling young people to take traineeship in other countries, you have helped build friendships, connections and understanding worldwide.
At a time of great test for the International community, your work is more necessary than ever.
Multilateralism must be strengthened so we can overcome our many common challenges and build a world of peace, prosperity, dignity and opportunity for all people on a healthy planet.
The United Nations looks forward to many more years of cooperation and partnership with your association."
