The Seychelles Embassy in Brussels Launches Blog

The Seychelles Embassy in Brussels has launched today its own blog following the Embassy´s participation in the "Web2.0 Policy-Makers' Awareness Raising and Capacity Building Initiative Workshop", organised by the CTA in collaboration with the ACP Secretariat.

Some 30 participants from ACP embassies in Brussels, including Seychelles, were sensitized on the different available web applications and tools that can be used by them to become better performing and cost-effective.

The Seychelles Embassy was represented by Ambssador Barry Faure and Miss Audrey Dine, the newly-appointed Counsellor (see photo on the left). Below are their reaction to the workshop.

Ambassador's views:

"I feel extremely happy that the CTA and the ACP Secretariat have joined hands to, for the first time since I have been posted here (18 months), something that will go a long way towards improving the efficiency of our Missions."

Counsellor's views:

"It was a very productive workshop, which broadened the knowledge of participants in web applications and tools that can be used by the embassies and their headquarters for making the sharing of information, as well as collaborative work, much easier."

The Seychelles Embassy's blog will be used as a communication tool for the Government and the Embassy's activities in Brussels.
