The metaverse could be used as a tool to speed up global diplomatic efforts, Accenture and the Anwar Gargash Diplomatic Academy (AGDA) were quoted as saying by WAM News Agency.

Accenture and AGDA issued a new report titled “Amplifying Diplomacy with the Metaverse,” highlighting the metaverse’s role in bolstering cooperation among countries, launching inclusive, efficient, and environment-friendly dialogues, and facilitating the cross-border movement of talent. The report explores how the metaverse can support consular tasks, negotiations, reporting, and training.

By using Web3 technologies, like blockchain, diplomatic communications in the metaverse will allow officials of various countries to hold interactive and immersive talks, the report pointed out, highlighting the importance of facilitating administrative tasks and sharpening strategic skills in the metaverse.

But the report shed light on remarkable challenges which the interaction in the metaverse can face, such as infrastructure readiness, privacy concerns, security, and technical barriers.

Commenting on the report, Director-General of AGDA Nickolay Mladenov said: “AGDA’s partnership with Accenture on this timely topic showcases how collaboration across different sectors and fields can benefit the private and public sector. The report deploys a use-case approach and explores how the metaverse has the potential to transform the diplomatic practice, making diplomacy more interactive, immersive, and imaginative.”

Meantime, Managing Director at Accenture Middle East Bashar Kilani pointed out that the metaverse, as a platform, will transform the way through which the diplomatic community works, affirming the importance of making a shift in mindsets such as progressive government initiatives to gain the full benefits this new technology, citing the launch of Dubai’s Metaverse Strategy.

In November 2022, Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum approved the new stage of the Dubai Metaverse Strategy, which aims to promote its digital economy and implement measures that boost the usage of the metaverse and future technology in the emirate.
