Training given to New Ambassadors ends today

The capacity-building training that has been given to newly appointed ambassadors for the last two weeks has concluded today (March 06) in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister H.E. Demeke Mekonnen.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister stressed the need to be disciplined and be able to quickly understand the unpredictable and constantly changing socio-economic realities to protect the interest of the country.

He said Ethiopia also expects the ambassadors to scale up a fraternal relationship with Africa and its people for accelerated economic engagement and beneficial effects in the political sphere.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister concluded his speech underlining the need to conduct such awareness-raising and capacity-building training sessions, both at the Headquarter and the missions boosting women participation and covering topics deemed to advance Ethiopiaโ€™s interests.

State Minister, H.E. Ambassador Burtukan Ayano, on her part, said the training covered about 20 topics, including, inter alia, tourism and image building, business and economy, citizen-centered and Diaspora engagements, consular services, and communication and digital diplomacy.

She expressed her hope that the ambassadors are equipped with the necessary knowledge that would help them shoulder huge responsibilities and make knowledge-based decisions.

The ambassadors expressed appreciation to the Ministry for the training session that helped them deliberate issues that would have importance on carrying out their responsibilities.
