Gastrodiplomacy is a promising and developing sector of public and social diplomacy, intended to develop a favorable image of the country and a “national brand”. In addition to building contacts between countries and peoples, this may contribute to increasing exports of local products, promoting domestic restaurant businesses, tourism services, and organizing various gastronomic events in the international market. Gastronomic “tools” have long played an important role in political and business negotiations.

Leonid Gelibterman, President of the International Enogastronomic Center, member of the Presidium of the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) expert council on gastronomic tourism, head of the Gastronomy Committee of the Russian Union of Travel Industry, Ambassador of Taste for the Global Gastronomy and Director of the Center for Gastrodiplomacy of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of the Russian Federation, will tell online in detail what gastrodiplomacy is and how various countries utilize this relatively new form of international political and business relations.
