It assembled over 100 attendees; including Ambassadors, High Commissioners as well as many other senior diplomats and businesspeople from across industries, engaging in a discussion on the commercial, economic, defence, security and political aspects of diplomacy. The event provided an overview of what the role of today’s diplomat should be and an opportunity to encourage London diplomats to become more commercially active in securing more bilateral and multilateral trade and investment both from and in the UK.
