With regard to diplomacy information of various kind are in the very center of its operation
and at the same time the purpose of existence. The paper discusses from the theoretical perspective the
process of information management in economic diplomacy. The author shortly identifies the mandate
of economic diplomacy in processing information based on the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations
from 1961 and focuses on the basic description of main information processes that take place
within economic diplomacy. Part of the paper also discusses the role of information in diplomacy
through areas of diplomatic action that may benefit from the information processes as well as their
main receiving bodies.
