The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration will be hosting the second annual Diplomatic Week during 18 to 24 October, under the theme Diplomacy: Positioning for the Future Towards New Approaches, Tools and Methods for Implementing New Goals. The event will serve as a forum to strengthen and deepen bilateral and multilateral relations with some seventy countries. The youth of the country will also be educated on The Bahamas role on the world stage. Further, Diplomatic Week 2015 will also provide an effective arena to further The Bahamas campaign for election to the United Nations; Human Rights Council and re-election to the International Maritime Organization. Finally, key government officials inclusive of Prime Minister Perry G. Christie and Minister of Foreign Affairs & Immigration Fred Mitchell will discuss the foreign policy of The Bahamas.

The Inaugural Diplomatic Week was held October 2014 as mandated by Clause 90 (2) of the Public Service Commission’s Foreign Service Orders Regulations 2014.  It was attended by a cross-section of non-resident ambassadors accredited to The Bahamas, the resident Diplomatic Corps, Bahamas Overseas Heads of Mission, Bahamas Honorary Counsels abroad, Ministry officials, colleague ministers and Public Service officials. Diplomatic Week 2015 seeks to build on this firm foundation in order to educate and inform others on the role of Foreign Policy and Foreign Diplomacy through the perspective of The Bahamas.

The public is invited to attend the Diplomatic Week Church Service scheduled for Sunday October 18, 2015 at 11:15 a.m. at Christ Church Cathedral and the COB Lecture Series on Tuesday October 20, 2015 at 6:00p.m. at the Harry C. Moore Auditorium (Library), Oakes Field Campus.
