Egypt has assumed the chairmanship of the Vienna Chapter of the largest Inter-Governmental Organization of developing countries in the UN, comprising 134 countries representing some 80 percent of the world population.

Vienna is one of the four headquarters of the United Nations, along with New York, Geneva and Nairobi. In September 2018, the Vienna Chapter commemorated its 20th Anniversary at the Vienna International Centre.

The office of G-77 Vienna Chapter, which was inaugurated on May 19, 1998 by Carlos Margariños, the Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), has serviced all Vienna-based organizations by providing administrative support to the members.
It serves as institutional memory of the Group’s activities and represents an effective link for better coordination, communication, and cooperation between the Vienna-based organizations (VBOs) and the Group, which employs more than 4,000 employees from over 110 countries.
