Diplomatic Press Officers meeting

Diplomatic Press Officers in The Hague by Diplomat Magazine

Alexey Dmitrievskiy, Press Attaché of the Embassy of Russia in The Hague, proposed to Diplomat Magazine a meeting among press officers currently working at embassies in The Hague. The purpose of this proposed meeting was to find the way to bridge the gap between the international community and Dutch media.

To acquaint the press officers with one another, Dr. Mayelinne De Lara, publisher of Diplomat Magazine, called for a meeting at the Carlton Ambassador. During this first meeting many ideas were discussed by the group, and each press attaché had the opportunity to share his or her point of view.

In the days to come, a summary of the meeting will be circulated among the press officers and a Facebook group will be created. The Facebook group will invite press attachés of international organizations and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to join for a meeting. Additionally, plans will be formulated to contact news agencies and inviting Dutch journalists to talk.

Press officers from different missions attending the first meeting: Mrs Nino Kvantrishvili, Public Relations and Civil Actions planning Division, Head of Division, Embassy of Georgia, Ms Ipsita Uppal, Media Officer, Embassy of India, Susana Patricia Azucena Mancia, Vice-Consul, Embassy of El Salvador, Mr Alexey Dmitrievskiy, Press Officer, Embassy of Russia, Ms Asha Antony, Second Secretary, India, Dr Mayelinne De Lara Publisher Diplomat Magazine, Mr. Alvaro Sanchez Cordero, Charge d’affaires, Embassy of Venezuela, Mr Roy Lie A Tjam, Editor Diplomat Magazine, Mr Muhammad M Alnery. Third secretary, Head of Economic & Cultural Section, Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia and Mr Mikhail Sobolev, new Press Officer of the Embassy of Russia.

Mr. Dmitriesvkiy’s efforts display the mutually beneficial elements of partnering with Diplomat Magazine. Via our platform, it is possible to send pictures, press releases, and more, connecting embassies in the Hague with Dutch media.

Additionally, due to our partnership with Dow Jones and Factiva, Diplomat Magazine is going global, reaching 1.3 million subscribers and over 70,000 readers via Benelux. With this in mind, Mr. Dmitriesvkiy’s meeting will certainly be productive for all.
