DUBAI: The UAE embassy in Japan along with the cooperation of the autonomous federal diplomatic research and civil service training institute in Abu Dhabi, Anwar Gargash Diplomatic academy (AGDA), hosted an educational seminar on May 31st.
AGDA was launched in 2014 to promote the UAE’s interests worldwide and support the mission of the ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation.
The main goal is to educate and qualify the UAE’s current and future diplomats to represent the country on a global stage in a time where national security and economic prosperity highly depend on well-educated government leaders and policy makers.
As part of the UAE’s mission to empower the youth and enhance their participation in educational seminars, a workshop called “stimulating the capabilities of diplomatic cadres through adaptation and effectiveness” will aid in the youth’s cooperation with government and federal entities to make a long-term impact on their potential and future in the country and abroad.
This workshop is part of a series of lectures of the International Diplomatic Training Program.
As part of the lecture series, AGDA’s faculty travelled to six capital cities around the world, eventually landing in Tokyo, hosting lectures and discussions with members of the UAE’s diplomatic corps, members of the diplomatic community, along with Emirati students conversing about diverse topics ranging from climate change and GCC relations with countries in Asia and Africa to the role of women in diplomatic services and leadership.
