On Saturday, November 5th, 2022, the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) successfully held the 2022 edition of “Global Town Hall”, one of the largest virtual events with a global outreach of the year. The conference welcomed nearly 8500 participants from 142 countries and territories worldwide. As a partner of FPCI, following the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two think-tanks in 2022, IRSEA has also been one of the institutional partners of Global Town Hall 2022. Furthermore, IRSEA popularised the event among its institutional partners in Romania and Europe, supporting Global Town Hall to gain traction in the country and region.
During the event, Ambassador (p) Gheorghe Savuica delivered his Address in video format. The Ambassador has been formally congratulated by FPCI, which manifested its “most sincere gratitude to you and the Romanian Institute for Europe-Asian Studies (IRSEA) for partnering with us in convening the Global Town Hall 2022.”
It is expected that, in 2023, Global Town Hall will grow into a structured and formalised group, with partner institutions across the world and hubs in various regions.
