On June 30, 2009, we held Meet America Program briefings for a group of 35 U.S. and Canadian students, teachers, NGO activists, journalists and business representatives who visited Poland at the invitation of the Polish-American Freedom Foundation within their School of Leaders program. Political Officer Duncan Walker spoke to the group about U.S.-Polish cooperation in foreign policy, Economic Officer Thomas Palaia briefed the guests about current financial crisis and how it can affect current Polish-American economic cooperation, and Deputy Cultural Attaché Candace Faber gave a presentation on the Embassy’s role in supporting person-to-person contact between Americans and Poles.
We very much enjoyed meeting these participants and discussing issues that are important to Poles all over the world. We hope you will keep in touch!
