Ambassador Lecture – Working for a better future: Netherlands priorities in Lebanon


On Friday, 15 November 2019 Mr. Jan Waltmans, Ambassador of the Netherlands to Lebanon, will give a lecture titled Working for a better future: Netherlands Priorities in Lebanon. Maastricht University and Maastricht School of Management jointly host this Ambassador Lecture.

With the practical experience of conducting diplomacy in countries like Sudan, Afghanistan and Iraq, Mr. Waltmans has been committed to fostering the Dutch-Lebanese relations. In his interactive lecture, Mr. Waltmans will provide an insight into the key challenges Lebanon faces, including the presence of over 1 million Syrian refugees. He will explain why the Government of the Netherlands has decided to give a 'focus country status' to Lebanon. What does it mean to be a 'focus country' for the Embassy? What results can be achieved?

So join us on 15 November to learn first-hand about the Netherlands' priorities in Lebanon and how it is working towards a better future for the country.
