Italian Ambassador Giovanni Umberto De Vito recently met Jovan Kurbalija and Alex Sceberras Trigona, the founding director and senior fellow/founder member of the Diplo Foundation respectively in the framework of the existing collaboration between the Istituto Diplomatico of the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Diplo Foundation of Malta.

During the discussion, Italian support and appreciation was expressed for the training initiatives and projects organised by the Malta NGO active in developing diplomats’ capacities in the area of internet governance, ICT policy and e-diplomacy, which are increasingly becoming important policy issues at global level.

The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs introduced the Diplo Foundation e-learning modules several years ago as part of a strategy aimed at promoting more modern means of communication among Italian diplomats and within the network of Italian Missions abroad.

At the end of the cordial meeting, Dr Kurbalija thanked Ambassador De Vito for the support and contribution provided by the Italian Government.
