The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announces Diplomatic Week 2017 – ‘Innovative Approaches to A Changing World’.  This is the 4th Annual such event and will be marked with attendance by the entire Diplomatic Corps of The Bahamas, both resident and non-resident.

Diplomatic week begins with a Church Service at Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday 15th October.
