President Weah Departs the country for Turkey

Liberia’s President, George Weah, left the country on Wednesday afternoon for the Antalya Diplomacy Forum in Turkey. The Liberian President will attend the three-day summit from March 11 to 13, 2022, together with other leaders of state and governments from Africa, Europe, South America, and Asia.

The “Antalya Diplomacy Forum” is a high-level conference of diplomats, including political leaders, diplomats, opinion leaders, and academics. It provides a fantastic forum for regional and global actors from the fields of diplomacy, policy, and business to exchange ideas and confront global concerns.

Diplomacy remains the core method of communication among leaders and states. With the participation of more than 2000 guests comprising Heads of State and Governments, Ministers of Foreign Affairs, and high-level representatives of the International Organizations, the first Antalya Diplomacy Forum (ADF) provided fruitful communications on global and regional issues among the representatives of politics, science, media, and business. ADF has become the first conference held with physical participation and remarkable attendance in the post-pandemic period and was noted as an important event in the field of foreign policy and diplomacy.

The 2022 edition of the forum will take place on March 11-13, 2022 under the theme “RECODING DIPLOMACY”. Issues to discuss with panels are as followed:

Democratic Governance, Leadership and Diplomacy, Energy Security, Fighting Racism and Discrimination, Development in Africa, Women Empowerment, Recoding Diplomacy, Climate Change & Energy Transition amongst others.

President Weah is expected to hold a bilateral meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
