8 September 2023, Vienna - Austria
On 8 September 2023, the Austro-Arab Chamber of Commerce (AACC) organised the “Ambassadors’ Meeting at Vienna School of International Studies”, in collaboration with the Vienna School of International Studies (also known as “Diplomatische Akademie Wien”), which was marked by the participation of the Austrian ambassadors to Kuwait, Libya, Syria and the United Arab Emirates, as well as a number of Arab embassies, represented by Their Excellencies the Ambassadors or diplomats in charge of bilateral relations.
The participants were warmly welcomed by AACC’s President H.E. Former Minister Dr. Werner Fasslabend; H.E. Ambassador Dr. Emil Brix, Director of Vienna School of International Studies; H.E. Mr. Hamad Alkaabi, Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Austria and Current President of the Arab Ambassadors Council in Vienna; and AACC Secretary-General Eng. Mouddar Khouja, who moderated the meeting.
Building on the success of last year’s initial meeting, this year’s event aimed again to forge connections between Austrian Ambassadors accredited to Arab countries and their Arab counterparts based in Austria. A key part of the event was the concise overview of recent developments and insights shared by Austrian diplomatic representatives posted across various Arab countries. This was followed by brief statements from their Arab counterparts. All participants showed keen interest and willingness to further strengthen the mutual relations.
At the end of the meeting, the attendees had the opportunity to further exchange thoughts and ideas at a tasty networking buffet arranged by AACC member and catering partner Momen Food.
