The Diplomatic Dispatch

The British Ambassador to Sweden blogs on The Local

HIGH TECH AND TRADITIONAL DIPLOMACY

As you may have seen Carl Bildt invited William Hague to visit Stockholm for talks later this month, via Twitter today.

Between them they have over 400,000 twitter followers and have sent over 8000 tweets.

But they also value face-to-face contact, good old-fashioned, as well as high-tech, communication.

So it’s excellent the Foreign Secretary’s coming to Stockholm at the end of August, a few days before another international visitor…

The two Foreign Ministers will, as Carl Bildt said on Twitter, have much to discuss privately.

And they’ll be talking publicly, at a Conference organised by the leading Swedish think tank UI, on Europe and globalisation.

The Foreign Secretary will also be talking to Sweden’s Ambassadors from round the world about his vision for the UK Foreign Service and more widely about diplomacy in the 21st century.

So the visit will be a timely opportunity to talk about challenges and opportunities facing us in Europe and beyond over the coming months. All of us at the Embassy are looking forward to it.
