Foreign Affairs Minister Carmelo Abela has stated that the Maltese Government will continue to support the DiploFoundation, which had been set up between the Governments of Malta and Switzerland with the aim of strengthening the voice of small countries which were developing in international diplomacy.

Minister Abela reiterated Malta’s commitment during a conference which discussed the future of diplomacy in the digital era. Minister Abela added that through their cooperation in the DiploFoundation, Malta and Switzerland were determined to explore new niches in a more digital and creative world.

The DiploFoundation has been cooperating with the University of Malta for 15 years in post-graduate courses on various aspects of international relations and diplomacy. The Foundation is based in Malta, with offices in Geneva and Belgrade. Minister Abela stated that the Maltese Government is proud of the success of this initiative, through which the foundation has developed online programmes and courses which have attracted some 6,000 students from about 200 countries.
