After acknowledging the number of ‘clicks’ received on my recent article published on November 22nd titled: “On AD Haagsche Courant News” in “Diplomatic News”, I have decided to re-write it again with fewer modifications and additional links, specially for our December “Diplomatic Pouch” section. 2015 institutes the 3rd successful year of Diplomat Magazine. It is the main and very first diplomatic publication in Nethelands’ history, officially launched in June 19th, 2013 by  diplomats accredited to the Kingdom of the Netherlands. DM is a publication that continues to grow at high-speed, counting nowadays over 60,000 hits per month not to say Diplomat Magazine’s bi-annual glossy edition.

Diplomat Magazine has the originality to be the first publication inviting ambassadors to write for the kind of publication like DM, to be the first of having the initiative in organizing, as a publication, regular diplomatic gatherings, diplomatic tours or art exhibits. The idea came out from one of the brainchild behind DM, Head of Diplomatic missions in 2013, from the creative effort of Dr. Eugenio Matos Gomez, Charge d’affairs a.i. a career diplomatic agent of the Dominican Republic Embassy in The Hague. From the Government of Malta: http://gov.mt/en/Government/Press%20Releases/Pages/2013/June/28/pr1374.aspx

A teamwork effort, innovation and creativity, has made Diplomat Magazine the second largest diplomatic Online publication in Europe and the fastest growing of its kind in the world!!!! Moreover, thanks to the collaboration of supporters, magnificent photographers, contributing writers and volunteer diplomatic spouses (such as Dr. Mayelinne De Lara, Publisher), with press correspondents stationed in: Brussels, BENELUX, North America, the UK, Latin America and an abound of career diplomats directly involved;  Diplomat Magazine enjoys today a record of followers. It is illustrative the outstanding collaboration of some honorable Dutch journalist citizens.

The local press is supporting the cause as well, such as AD/Haagse Courant, amongst others. The AD/Haagse Courant, a serious and very well known publication in the Netherlands, contributes to enhance diplomacy and international relations in the city of peace and justice, and indeed, to the popularity of Diplomat Magazine as “the main working tool media for local diplomats” as expressed in one of his editorial, H.E. Carlos Arguello Gomez, Dean of the diplomatic corps. This time, AD/Haagse Courant is referring to Diplomat Magazine’s El Salvador Diplomats Meet&Greet organized recently at Carlton Ambassador Hotel.
