Foreign Ministry to host Heads of Mission conference

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be hosting a Heads of Mission Conference (HOMC) from April 3-8, 2017 at the Pegasus Hotel, under the theme “Advancing Guyana’s Diplomacy in the 21st Century”, a release from the Ministry of the Presidency said yesterday.

President David Granger and Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl B. Greenidge will be addressing the Opening Session, the release said.

The Conference, the release said, will provide Guyana’s diplomatic envoys abroad with the opportunity not only to consider a broad agenda of international affairs, but more particularly to familiarise themselves with the dynamics of the nation’s internal development which its diplomacy serves.

Discussions will focus on a wide range of political and economic issues over a period of five days, including the challenges and opportunities presented by the current complex but evolving international situation; the preservation of the nation’s territorial integrity and sovereignty; economic diplomacy and the continuing role of the Diaspora in national development.
