Thank you for your work in capacity building in Small States! #Diploturns15 – I had the great privilege to be nominated to attend the Modern Diplomacy for Small States Course in Malta as part of a Diplo Foundation, Commonwealth Secretariat & Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malta joint programme in 2012. I was then afforded the opportunity to return to the same programme in 2014 and 2015 and share with my fellow Diplomats from Small States from the Africa/Caribbean/Pacific Regions across the Globe, my personal and professional insights on the challenges facing Small States. The programme created a great network for dialogue to occur between Officers from across these Regions and I have called upon these invaluable contacts continuously throughout my career. I would like to personally thanks Diplo, the staff and administrators and fellow colleagues and wish you all the best in the years to come!
