On March 28, a meeting of the Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund Board of Trustees was held to review the results of the organisation’s work in 2015 and approve key areas of activity for the near future. The meeting was chaired by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Participants noted the increasing role of public diplomacy, notably in providing a foreign audience with an unbiased view of Russia’s position on the current issues on the global agenda.
This work is in demand amid the willingness of foreign sociopolitical and business circles to maintain comprehensive relations with Russia in the spirit of partnership on an equal and mutually beneficial basis. Direct contact between people and constructive cooperation between representatives of civil society will promote this process.
