Message from the Mayor of the City of Geneva

The Diplomatic Club of Geneva brings together the actors of International Geneva.

As Mayor of the City of Geneva, I would like to reaffirm the support the local authorities provide for the Diplomatic Club, which contributes to the reputation of our international city.

The Diplomatic Club enables meetings, gatherings and exchanges between the various groups of International Geneva in a dynamic and friendly context, enhancing personal and professional ties as well as being instrumental in providing synergies amongst the multiple creative and unique collaborations.

International Geneva must reinvent itself. As a true space for dialogue, the Diplomatic Club builds bridges between the diplomatic, private and academic circles of Geneva, as well as the local authorities. The place of cities in international relations is set to develop and Geneva can play a key role in this. The Club, with its ability to provide a space for reflection and improve the sharing of knowledge on the major issues of today and the challenges of tomorrow, would naturally have its place there.

I, therefore, thank the Club for its past and current contribution to our region and wish it all the best in the future.
