Ukrainian participants of the Open World Program visited the Embassy of Ukraine in Washington, D.C., on November 6, 2014.
The group represented local self-governments, central and local government authorities, and educational institutions of our state, and came to America to learn about the U.S. democratic governance system. Following the orientation course in Washington, DC, and familiarization with the U.S. federal government, they will depart to various U.S. cities where they’ll be hosted by American NGO partners.
At the Embassy they were welcomed by Ambassador of Ukraine to the U.S. Olexander Motsyk, who in his speech welcomed the American side for the many years of operation of the Open World Program and stressed the importance of representation of participants from different regions of Ukraine, making a special note of the representatives of Luhansk Oblast. Ambassador John O’Keefe, Executive Director of Open World Leadership Center, also welcomed the guests.
During the visit to the Embassy, the Ukrainian Open World Participants had an opportunity to meet the invited representatives of American partner organizations and media.
