The sixth general assembly of the Global Public Diplomacy Network (GPDN), chaired by Katara General Manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al Sulaiti, on Tuesday listened to the presentations of delegations of eight new countries who have applied to join the network.
The general assembly received credentials of Bosnia, Cuba, Georgia, Malaysia, Serbia, South Africa and Ukraine.
The countries were represented at the conference by specialised cultural institutions related to public international diplomacy programmes under the supervision of prominent personalities who have achieved wide fame in the cultural sector in their countries.
The conference also launched a new electronic portal for the Global Public Diplomacy Network in the presence of delegations of member states, as part of Katara pioneering initiative aiming to enable permanent communication between the members. The portal will provide a flexible and dynamic mechanism that facilitates the process of exchanging information and contributes to the cultural activities of the member states.
Darwish Ahmed al Shaibani, secretary-general of the Global Public Diplomacy Network, said: “After receiving the leadership of the network, Katara pursues a distinguished strategy in the electronic side by establishing an electronic portal linking the members of the network and providing many common services to them in a safer and more developed way.”
The electronic portal of the network also contains news of recent events that are held around the clock in each institution of the member states and an archive of previous news. It also provides a fast and flexible search engine, facilitating the process of browsing and accessing information, news or topic related to the cultural activities and events of the member countries.GPDN launches electronic portal
