MIAMI, Florida – Bahamas Consul General to Miami H. Ricardo Treco attended the Consul Corps College Symposium held in Washington, DC at The Bank of America Corporate Center, November 18-20, 2015.

The symposium attracts diplomatic professionals from many countries throughout the world. 

The Consular Corps College was founded in 1969 by Consul General Walter R. Regirer with the primary goal of increasing professional communication among foreign consular officers serving in the United States. It is registered as a non-profit corporation in the State of Virginia.

A non-political professional society organized by and for consuls, the Consular Corps College’s objectives are to bring consular officers together to serve as a channel of information about consular affairs, to enhance diplomats’ professional effectiveness, to inform those with whom they deal about its functions and to improve their ability to serve their governments.

During the high profile event diplomats were officially welcomed by Mauro Kolobaric, Consul-General and Minister-Counsellor, Embassy of Australia and Dean of the Consular Corps College.  Diplomats were exposed to valuable resources, information, and provocative presentations. 

The agenda showcased a cadre of Consular Experts who gave keynote lectures on various subjects pertaining to Consular Procedures and Functionalities.

The Bahamas’ delegation to the World Radio Communication Conference 2015 (WRC-15) met with Bahamas Ambassador to the United Nations’ Office in Geneva H.E. Rhoda M. Jackson, as a way of introduction, for the purpose of exploring opportunities where the Permanent Mission can assist the Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (URCA) in advancing its work in the International Telecommunication Union located in Geneva, Switzerland.  

The delegation, headed by Mr. Randol Dorsett, Chairman of URCA’s Board, participated in WRC-15 held by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in Geneva from 2 to 27 November.  The Conference is revising the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum, inter alia.  The conference’s work has been focused on issues of global interest, such as climate change monitoring, public protection and disaster relief communications, mobile broadband services, safety and distress communication systems for maritime and aeronautical service and global flight-tracking for civil aviation, following international concern due to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 in 2014.
