Dutch Ambassador Visits the BIDTI

Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Sri Lanka H.E Bonnie Horbach visited the BIDTI on 14th February 2023.
Welcoming the Dutch envoy, the Director General of the BIDTI briefed on the background of the institute and its programmes conducted for the Foreign Service Officers as well as for the general public.
Ambassador Horbach shared her views about peace and security, women empowerment, geo-politics as well as other areas that are worth considering. She emphasised that small countries like the Netherlands and Sri Lanka should get together to form a global rules based order which is lacking presently.
Ambassador Horbach and DG also exchanged views on furthering relations between the two diplomatic institutions.
Upon relocation of the BIDTI to the BMICH premises, the Dutch Ambassador was the first diplomatic envoy to visit the Institute.
The Director General conveyed best wishes to Ambassador Horbach for a successful and pleasant assignment in Sri Lanka.
