37 Appointees Meet Bio Today

 

President Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio will today, Thursday 23rd August, 2018 officially launch the opening ceremony for the induction of over 37 newly appointed High Commissioners, Ambassadors and Financial Attachés at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation’s conference hall, Tower Hill, Freetown.

According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Dr. Alie Kabba, the induction of the newly appointed High Commissioners, Ambassadors and Financial Attachés is in line with the New Direction’s Foreign Policy strategy to enhance Economic Diplomacy and fulfil His Excellency’s promise to this nation to promote career diplomats.

This training, Dr. Kabba furthered, will instill in our diplomats and government officials the President’s vision of their foreign policy objective which, he said, de-emphasises aid dependence to one in favour of promoting favourable trade and cooperation. “I am optimistic that after this induction our newly appointed High Commissioners, Ambassadors and Financial Attachés will comfortably enhance trade and development in their respective overseas missions,” Dr. Kabba assured.

Meanwhile, the Vice President, Government Ministers and Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Members of the Diplomatic and Consular Corps, the press and other distinguished guests have consented to grace the event.
