XXII United States-Spain Forum in Virginia, on September 22-23, 2017

Chargé d’Affaires Benjamin Ziff will participate in the XXII United States-Spain Forum in Williamsburg, Virginia, on September 22-23, 2017. Organized by the US-Spain Council and the Fundación Consejo España-Estados Unidos, this location is aimed at highlighting the history and the foundation of the United States of America as a nation. The settlement of a group of Spanish Jesuit priests in Virginia in 1570, although unsuccessful, is another example of the Spanish heritage in our country.

High level Spanish and U.S. corporate leaders, government officials and experts in education and cultural matters participate in the Forum.
