Friends and Europeans,
Let us, first of all, remember my predecessor. Colleen Bennet was a capable commissioner, one of the best this Union has had. She developed an embassy programme which I will try to further develop; she has expanded a good recruiting schedule. These programmes and developments have to be continued, and therefore I will do my best doing so.
Also, I would like to thank the councillors who cast their votes in the Forgein Affaris Commission by-election, those who voted for me especially, of course! It is always good to see democracy solving an empty commission spot quickly and without problems. The voters have graciously elected me, and therefore I will carry out the task of Forgein Affairs Commissioner as best as I can, and I am anxious to begin work. As Colleen previously stated, I also plan to let member states have more of a voice in the Forgein Affairs Commision. I will ask them for counsel when I need it, and ask for their approbation whenever I have something interesting to prospose.
Two months is, of course, not a long time to spend in a commission seat, yet I will try to do as best as I can to help move this Union forward. I will try to continue and expand recruiting and the embassy programme, which have helped our region with the vital task of getting more members joining the Union. That is what we have to achieve, and that is what I'm axious to do. If anyone has questions, I am happy to try to answer them!
Newly-elected Forgein Affairs Commissioner
Yeah we definitely need to re-work our TGs. Our recruitment telegram isn't nearly as creative or exciting as it could be, and we don't utilise the EU brand name as much as we could. You'd think the EU would easily be one of the most sought after regions in a nation simulation game, especially when it comes to political roleplayers. Also agreed on the ambassador front. I know some people might argue that we tried that before - but I don't think we really did. I remember we appointed a cohort of ambassadors a while ago, but they were given no instructions or guidance whatsoever, and many of them didn't seem to understand what the role encompassed to begin with. Europolis RP would be amazing! I definitely believe we should set that up as soon as possible.
