Distinguished Visitors Day
On the 2nd of March prior, the Baltic Defence College’s (BALTDEFCOL) Annual
Conference on Russia we held a Distinguished Visitor’s Day (DVD). The
Ambassadors, Counsellors, Defence Attachés of allied, and partner nations were
invited to visit the College and many of them for the first time. As
BALTDEFCOL is an internationally staffed Professional Military Education
institution and regional hub of knowledge and research, it has been important
to introduce its activities to representatives of respective nations.
The distinguished visitors were welcomed by the Commandant, Brigadier General
Ilmar Tamm, members of the College Management Group, and Senior National
Representatives. This year our high-level guests represented the nations Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany, Lithuania, Ukraine and US.
The visit started with the briefing session to deliver a College overview,
which gave a synopsis of mission, vision, tasks, core activities, academic
events, research, and future developments.
The visit continued with the Annual Conference on Russia "Russia’s Futures”
which is an integral part of the college educational activities.
The Distinguished Visitor´s Day is the traditional event of BALTDEFCOL, which
is very appreciated, especially by all the new diplomatic personnel.
